BROAD BEAN & GOATS' CHEESE PASTA

Added by: on Sep 1st, 2016
Pascal's new recipe book of 200 pasta recipes is excellent - at the moment we aren't using any other cook book - probably the reason I am struggling with my baby weight! There are recipes for everyone in it and some are very different to what I would normally choose. As I have mentioned .. more >

Directions:

1

Start by putting the tomatoes and garlic in a food processor and blitz until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Tip into a large bowl, stir in the oil and vinegar and season. I did 3 garlic cloves by mistake - it definitely doesn't need more than 2!

2

Cook the broad beans in a saucepan of boiling water according to the packet's instructions. Drain and rinse under cold water and repeat. Apparently now you are meant to shell the broad beans - I didn't bother with this part as it looked far too time consuming but I don't think it mattered! Stir the beans into the tomato mixture and leave them to marinate while you cook the pasta.

3

Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water until al dente (according to the packet instructions - mine took 8 minutes). Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again.

4

Stir the pasta into the tomato and broad bean mixture and then add the basil and the goats' cheese and toss together. Season according to taste and let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.

We were all very pleasantly surprised with this recipe - it tasted really good. I was shocked by how much Arabella enjoyed it - a good way to get veggies into kids. We all commented how we would like it as a hot pasta as well and I will definitely be blending the tomatoes like this again as it is a great way to make a sauce. Another successful recipe - perfect hot or cold and as a main or a side.

I am still religiously saving new recipes that I want to cook…..hopefully once my baby hits the 3 month mark and life gets a little easier (apparently)…..I will be able to start making them! This was another quick ..

We eat a lot of goat's cheese in our house, Arabella likes to eat slices of it as her afternoon snack and I reckon I could get her to eat most things as long as it was covered in goat's cheese. Therefore when I found a recipe for a new goat's cheese pasta dish, I had to try it out. This is from the waitrose magazine and is perfect to cook now as squash is in season. It took around ..
