Mac n Goat Cheese
3/4 lb macaroni pasta (I used whole wheat penne)
1/4 c evoo
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1 9oz bag of spinach
salt and pepper
6 oz goat cheese, crumbled (mine had Mediterranean spices in it)
3/4 cup toasted walnuts (I didn't use these but I wish I had--maybe almonds though)
I also added kalamata olives and think that mushrooms would have been a great addition too
In a large pot, cook pasta until al dente. Drain, but reserve 1/4 cup of the water. Keep pasta warm.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook the garlic until golden brown. Stir in the tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, and spinach. Pour in the pasta water and cook until spinach is wilted. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir the vegetables and their juices into the warm pasta and add the goat cheese. Combine until all cheese is melted and top with the walnuts.
