The temperatures are dropping which means it’s time for comfort food. I guess there is really never a bad time for comfort food, but when it’s dark and cold outside I think comfort food is a must. Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods and this Creamy Goat Cheese Pasta with Spinach and Roasted Mushrooms is comforting to the very last bite.
This is a great weeknight dinner recipe because it is easy to make and tastes so good after a long day of work. I also like that it is healthier than your average creamy pasta dish. I didn’t use any heavy cream or butter to make this rich and creamy pasta. The goat cheese melts in with the pasta creating a flavorful and creamy pasta dish.
If you don’t think you are a goat cheese fan, don’t turn up your nose just yet. Josh isn’t the biggest goat cheese fan and he loves this pasta dish. The first time I made it he didn’t even know it was goat cheese. I love being sneaky sometimes:)
I also added some vegetables to bulk up the nutritional value and flavor of the pasta. The roasted garlic mushrooms and fresh spinach are so tasty in this pasta dish. I sprinkled in some freshly chopped basil right before serving because fresh basil is always a good idea-especailly when it comes to pasta.
Add Creamy Goat Cheese Pasta with Spinach & Roasted Mushrooms to your dinner menu. This easy meatless pasta dish is a favorite of ours and I think you will enjoy it too!
