This is a very easy, cheater’s version of a pasta sauce. I was feeling very lazy & determined to make a creamy & comforting pasta dish using stuff I had around. Two things I had around were these guys.
I also had a hunk of goat cheese. The result was this dish. As you can see from the photos, my basil was on its last legs but it was still tasty! Easy, easy, easy, fast & delicious! The sauce comes together in less time than it takes to cook the pasta. Try it!
Lazy Night Creamy Goat Cheese & Tomato Pasta
1/2 lb of your favorite dry pasta
2 garlic cloves – minced
1 (10 oz) can Campbell’s sun-ripened yellow tomato soup (or another variety – if you choose)
1 (10 oz) can Rotel (or diced tomatoes)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese – grated
4 oz goat cheese
1 tsp crushed red pepper
S&P to taste
Garnishes: fresh basil, chopped tomatoes, parsley, grated Parmesan, crumbled goat cheese
Cook the pasta.
In a stock pot – heat a TBS or two of olive oil. Add garlic & crushed red pepper. Cook for one minute then add the Rotel, canned soup, Parmesan & goat cheese. Stir to blend & season with S&P. Add a little hot pasta water if it seems too thick. Toss with cooked & drained pasta, garnish as you will & devour.
