Spinach and mushroom pasta with goat cheese

by Elizabeth on September 2, 2013

Welcome back for day 2 of my 30 Days of Fabulous Fall Foods! In case you missed day 1, it’s something you will definitely want to try.

I made this Thursday night after changing around something things in a recipe I pinned last week. I highly recommend it for goat cheese lovers! The best thing is I bet it would be good with your favorite kind of cheese? whether that’s bleu, gouda, brie, etc. I chose goat cheese because, well, it just makes life better. Let me be clear that the stronger cheese is just an accent. The base sauce is alfredo (all I had was the light version) but it didn’t taste “light” at all.

Ingredients:

  • 16 box of rotinni pasta
  • 2 cups alfredo sauce
  • 1 cooked and shredded chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach
  • 1/4 chopped red bell pepper
  • 4 small sliced and cooked mushrooms
  • 2-3 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • garlic salt to taste

Instructions:

Very easy! Cook the pasta until tender and stir in alfredo sauce and garlic salt. Add in vegetables and chicken and top with the goat cheese. 

This is something I plan to make again! It looks and tastes fancy and it only took about 20 minutes to prepare.

Looks yummy! I’ll have to adapt the recipe a bit for everyone’s allergies, but can’t wait to try it out. :) thanks for sharing!!!

This sounds fantastic! I’m a huge goat cheese lover, so I’ll have to try this soon. And it will give me a reason to make homemade alfredo sauce in the Vitamix – double win!

Ooo I haven’t had a good creamy, cheesy pasta dish in a while! But I am having pesto risotto tonight, so that will have to do. ;) Thanks for the recipe!

How does spinach and mushroom pasta constitute “fall?” Is there something inherently seasonal about this dish? Haha just curious..
