Shrimp. Tomato and Goat Cheese Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

Ahtough this light dish is truly delicious "as is", you can vary it by adding leftover cooked broccoli or asparagus. Each week, I cook 8 ounces of pasta, drain and store it in a resealable plastic bag so I can fix this light lunch or supper in under 20 minutes, including peeling the shrimp. Vegetarians can substitute black beans for the shrimp. If you love olives, sprinkle a few sliced ones on top.

Quite good, very rich tasting from the goat cheese. I also skipped the microwave. I bought pre-cooked shrimp, cooked the pasta, sauteed the onions and shoved everything in the fridge for a few hours, then poured all the ingredients into a soup pot and heated them just prior to serving.
