Quick and Easy Weeknight Pasta

While I love spending time in the kitchen carefully cooking up homemade meals, most weeknights give me about 15 minutes to whip up a dinner all with a toddler clinging to my leg.  This pasta dish with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese has become a weeknight staple for my family.  It is simple and easy to make but is far from boring.

Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

Pasta, any kind will do
Peas
Sun Dried Tomatos, packed in oil
Olive Oil
Goat Cheese

Boil your pasta in salted water.  While it is cooking, chop up your sun dried tomatoes, heat your peas and crumble the goat cheese.

Drain the pasta, drizzle with olive oil and  add the prepared ingredients.  If you add the goat cheese while the pasta is still hot, it will kind of melt into the pasta…mmmmm.

I left off the exact amounts for this recipe because it really should be made according to your tastes.  If your family loves peas, then add a lot.  If not, just add a little or try a different vegetable like some fresh chopped spinach.  This is one of those meals that is hard to mess up.  I love making a huge quantity of this pasta and then will use it throughout the week for lunches.

Have any weeknight meals that you love?  We would love to hear about them!

  1. Yum, I love pasta and I’m all over quick meals for during the week. We’ve been on a sandwich / panini kick lately. Just pesto, turkey, havarti, spinach and avocado. So easy and hardly any dishes to do!
