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.
This is great for College students trying to impress they friends! I just loved it but I didn`t use the micro. I sauteed the onions in olive oil then added lemon juice,tomatoes,spices,Cheese & shrimp, add cooked pasta. And you have a great delish DISH!!!!! Thanks BeachGirl!
