You know I’m all for EASY weeknight recipes that use minimal pans and dishes. All of these ingredients combine together right in the pan in less than 20 minutes! All you need to do is make pasta in a separate pot and stir it in. This was inspired by a viral feta pasta that’s making its rounds but I decided to make a creamier goat cheese version with the addition of coconut cream since cow based dairy doesn’t agree with me all that well! If you’re like me and sensitive to dairy, goat cheese may be a good option for you as it’s easier to digest. Alternatively if you’re vegan, I’d suggest swapping the goat cheese for a vegan soft cheese or cream cheese would be delicious too.
I like to make sure the pasta is a bit undercooked so that it doesn’t get mushy when mixing with the pasta sauce. You can use your favourite pasta (gluten-free if necessary) but I think pasta sauce goes best with spaghetti, linguini, fettucine or penne. Another good low carbohydrate version would be with spaghetti squash. Either way, this is the perfect creamy pasta recipe to enjoy on its own or add some chicken breast or shrimp as a protein side.
To add more nutrition to this recipe, I love adding some spinach or kale as it wilts right in and is absolutely delicious! If you’re going to add some greens, add it with the mushrooms to wilt before creating your sauce.
The addition of dill adds an amazing zesty and fresh flavour but it would be delicious with parsley or cilantro too. I prefer using fresh herbs as the dry versions aren’t nearly as flavourful.
I can’t wait for you to try this recipe! It’s sure to become a weekly staple that is so easy to make. Please tag me in your recipe creations, I’d love to see them!
