Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo

18 Apr

Sometimes there is nothing better then a simple pasta from minimal and delicious ingredients. I found this recipe here and I knew right away it would be something I would love, based on the use of goat cheese and roasted red peppers. Pulling everything together for this recipe was made much easier with the use of a store-bought jar of roasted red peppers, but you could also make these yourself. This one will definitely be on the list of new favourites, and I highly recommend you try this one out the next time you want to make an easy pasta dish.

Enjoy!

You will need:

  • 1 jar roasted red peppers
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic – minced
  • 1 cup of fat free half & half
  • 1 package herbed goat cheese
  • 2/3 cup grated parmigiano cheese
  • 1 package linguine (we used whole wheat) cooked to al dente
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil for 7-10 minutes until tender
  2. Bring large pot to a boil and add pasta
  3. Add half & half, goat cheese and s & p
  4. Stir until goat cheese is melted and keep warm over low heat
  5. Add in sliced peppers and parmigiano and stir
  6. Pour into a blender or use hand mixer to blend until desired texture (we preferred slightly chunky)
  7. Strain pasta and put back in pot
  8. Pour sauce over the pasta and stir
  9. Plate and add parsley and parm as desired

      I rolled a goat chesee log in chopped pistachios and dried cranberries for a party a couple weeks ago. It was a huge hit and a great salty, sweet/ creamy, crunchy combination. The goat chesee needs to sit out a bit to soften up and you really need to push those pistachios and cranberries into it, but still a super easy thing to make.
