Pesto & Goat Cheese Pasta


This week has been such a whirlwind with our fur baby in the hospital. Realizing late last night how overdue for a trip to the Harris Teeter I was, I decided to throw some random ingredients together for dinner. So, I present to you, Pesto & Goat Cheese Pasta!






I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I whipped this together. Oh, and it was delicious.



First, I sauteed baby portabella mushrooms with onions and garlic in butter, until tender.

Then I dumped half of a container of goat cheese and pesto on top! Okay, fine, I dumped the whole container of goat cheese on top, oops.


After a few minutes, I had a deliciously creamy mixture that I poured on top of whole wheat pasta. I sprinkled fresh parsley on top for color and voila...



Creamy Pesto & Goat Cheese Pasta!

  7. Ok I have to be honest. I can't get behind the mushrooms. Just can't do it. But other than that, pasta + cheese = good. This looks delicious.

  10. Fantastic recipe, and your photos made me want to lick my laptop screen! I love meals that use lots of mushrooms -- they're so packed with micronutrients, and a great substitute for meat. Thanks for sharing, and for helping me decide what I'll be making for dinner this week!
