Goat Cheese Pasta

Oh boy it has been a while!! I found out I was pregnant and was sick for the first few months, which meant I was not cooking at all! Thankfully now that I'm feeling better I'm cooking again!

If there's one thing I have on hand almost all the time, it's goat cheese. I love goat cheese! I put it on sandwiches, pizza, salad, pretty much everything! So this recipe was a fun new way for me to use goat cheese!

This recipe serves 1. (I made it when my husband was gone so it was dinner for one!)

1 cup uncooked bow tie noodles
4 TBS goat cheese (about 2 oz)
1 clove of garlic minced
8 cherry tomatoes
a handful of arugula
6 large basil leaves
1 slice of prosciutto
Olive oil
salt and pepper

First get your water boiling and start your pasta. While the pasta cooks start chopping the tomatoes, arugula, basil, and prosciutto. Chop everything into bite size pieces. Next heat some olive oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the prosciutto and cook until it's crispy. Add in the garlic. Next add the tomatoes. Once those are soft, add the arugula and basil until wilted.

Drain your pastas once it's cooked and in the warm pot stir the pasta and goat cheese together. Once combined, toss in the tomato mixture and serve!

This is such a flavorful and simple pasta! I know some of these seem like odd ingredients, but they are definitely some of my favorites so I always have them!

Hope you all enjoy!
