    Hahah my friend gave me this recipe and in lack of any other name, she put this as the email subject line. Works for me :) Just a fair warning: make sure you like goat cheese before making this recipe as it is definitely the predominate taste.

      So yummy! So easy. Decided to make as a side dish, but could easily have eaten it as a main course! Thanks Sofie! Made for Culinary Quest 2014, Int'l Agents of Quest!

      O-M-G - this dish is absolutely sensational and a MUST try if you like goat cheese. We could not get over just how good it is; your eyes roll back in your head on the first try. I used farfalle pasta and otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Do use the grated lemon peel, it really adds depth of flavour to the dish that you will not get from lemon juice. It will be a contender for the best dish of the ZWT 8 tour. Made by a fellow Bistro Babe

      Sofie, your so right, yum! I didn't have tarragon so used the basil that I had on hand and that tasted fine to me. Love, love, love the goat cheese and it's lovely flavor supported the other ingredients perfectly. Oh yes, I only had a small slice of lemon left so I just squeezed the juice into this (maybe 1/2 a tsp). I'm so happy that I found this, it's amazingly simple and delicious with a pinch of pink Himalayan salt sprinkled on top. :D
