When eating "Italian" out, I'd always go for something special; a new taste that wasn't served at home. I've adapted this recipe from those tastes and came up with a very quick, rich pasta dish that aims to please even the most sophisticated tastes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you love garlic add more; if you cannot tolerate garlic, eliminate it as this dish has a full rich taste on it's own.
  2. Boil pasta in salted water and cook until tender yet firm (aldente).
  3. Drain pasta and reserve 1 cup of hot cooking water.
  4. In a blender or food processor, blend the sundried tomatoes in olive oil, garlic and adding the reserved hot water slowly while blending making a"sauce".
  5. Pour sauce over cooked pasta; toss until nicely coated.
  6. Crumble goat cheese into pasta and toss until completely melted.
  7. Season with freshly ground black pepper and grated cheese and parsley, and Viola!
  8. a delicious, quick way to serve a very tasty meal.
  9. Enjoy!

This was tasty but not very creamy. I would have used half a box of pasta instead of the full pound. I would also increase the goat cheese but that is a personal preference:) I love the stuff! I had an 8 oz jar of sun dried tomatoes to use up and this recipe fit the bill. Even my 9 yr old enjoyed. Thanks for posting!

Well, I didn\'t have any goat cheese, so I substituted smoked gouda! A bit of a stretch, but it was still delicious. Thanks for a fast, easy and wonderful recipe Gingerbee!

This was easy and delicious. I used dried sun-dried tomatoes, soaking them in hot water first, and then adding a little olive oil. I also used farfalle, because I didn't have linguine. This dish is fancy enough for company and we really enjoyed it!
