    mary winecoff's Note:

    Chevre (goat cheese) is a favorite of mine. This is from "Monday to Friday Pasta" by Michele Urvater. The sweetness of the red peppers and the creaminess of the cheese combine to form something greater than their parts. The dish is fast with the aid of a food processor, it comes together in less than 20 minutes

      I was looking for recipes to use up fresh basil from my garden and this one caught my eye because I love chevre - what a yummy combination! I didn't use my food processor at all for this recipe, I minced the onion, garlic and red pepper and sauteed as directed, then added the cooked noodles, basil leaves and goat cheese to the hot pan and stirred until creamy. Topped with fresh ground pepper, this made a flavorful lunch today! Made for ZWT4.

      Absolutely fantastic pasta! The flavours of the two sauces blend together amazingly with a sweet and sour kind of taste. I can't describe the taste sensation. It's amazing. I didn't use red bell pepper as I don't like them. I used peppadews (like sweet peppers) instead and it really was amazing. I will make this again and again! Reviewed for photo tag Winter 2008

      This was good. I would have liked to have seen an actual amount for the pasta listed in the ingredients. I foolishly made 1 lb of whole wheat pasta, but felt that I didnt have quite enough sauce to go around. I just made about another cup of bechamel sauce and melted more goat cheese into it so there was enough to go around. I might guess that the sauce, as listed above, be good to coat about 1/2 lb of pasta. Overall, good flavors. I especially liked the sweetness of the red pepper and the fresh basil!
