Key Ingredients

ingredients to make Pasta with Goat Cheese and Spinach

Ingredient Notes

  • 1 package of pasta (whole wheat or gluten-free kind)
  • 1 package of frozen spinach (1 pound)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (fire roasted kind)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 5 ozs of goat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt

How to Make It

1. GATHER THE INGREDIENTS.

2. BOIL PASTA. In a large pot, add water, cover, and bring to boil. Cook spaghetti according to the directions on the package. I like to add a teaspoon of salt to the water and break spaghetti in half. Once pasta is cooked, drain and leave it in the colander.

3. SAUTE VEGETABLES. Use the same pot on medium-high heat saute spinach and tomatoes covered with a lid for 2-3 minutes.

4. COMBINE. Add pasta to the pot with vegetables, add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and one teaspoon of salt, mix well.

5. SERVE. Serve pasta on the plates or in a large serving dish, add crumbled cheese on top.

Recipe Tips

To make this meal gluten-free, choose gluten-free pasta.

For added animal protein, add rotisserie chicken or bake chicken breasts at 400 degrees in the oven for 15 minutes, let it rest before slicing and adding to the pasta.

If you are a garlic lover, add some fresh or powdered garlic to the creamy sauce for extra flavor.

Optional. Grate some Parmesan cheese on top.
