try to just eat one serving. i dare y0u. you wont be able to say away from the pot. seriously, it’s that good.

pasta with goat cheese, asparagus & spinach    adapted from real simple magazine

to prep: boil a pot of water. that’s it.

  1. to that boiling pot of water that you prepped (is that really prepping?) add asparagus. cook for about 3 minutes. remove with a slotted spoon and run under cold water, set aside (eat one if you wish, i did).
  2. add your pasta to the boil water. cook, and drain.
  3. meanwhile, in a saute pan, melt butter and cook your garlic for about 1 minute. add flour and whisk.
  4. add stock and stir till thickened.
  5. blend in goat cheese and cook for one more minute, add spinach.
  6. when spinach is wilted, add pasta, basil, asparagus, the cheese and toss and serve.

serve with extra parm and a salad. perfect meal.
