Very nice! The whole family enjoyed this simple summer meal. Creamy without being heavy. I increased all ingredients in the recipe by 1/3, using 16 oz angel hair pasta and 8 oz goat cheese. The goat cheese is not overwhelming, so even people who aren't goat cheese lovers would probably enjoy this dish. Love those Cooking Light recipes! Thanks for sharing!
