Tomato Basil Goat Cheese Pasta

Yummy this was good – made it on the spur of the moment (was watching England play Japan in soccer).  I also roasted chicken to put with this..


3 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

1 pound box pasta – I used penne

1 pints cherry tomatoes

1/2 tsp freshly ground salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1 cup fresh basil leaves, I tore mine into small pieces

1/2 – 3/4 cup small pieces goat cheese


Cook pasta according to directions.

Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat.  Add tomatoes and cook until they burst, about 5-7 minutes.  Add garlic.  Season with salt and pepper.  Reduce heat to low.  Before draining pasta, add basil to the tomatoes.

Remove from heat.  Drain pasta, place in serving dish, spoon tomatoes over top.  Sprinkle with goat cheese.

As always, enjoy!!!
