Pasta with Goat Cheese and Roasted Asparagus

This corkscrew pasta turns sophisticated with a creamy no-cook sauce. It's a dream to make: Just whisk together goat cheese, pasta water, and butter, and toss with cavatappi and asparagus.

    Super yummy and easy. I also added some roasted tomatoes to "cut" the intensity of the goat cheese. You really could add any roasted vegetable you wanted and it would be delicious.

    This is a very nice recipe. Everyone I've shared it with has been surprised at how sumptuous it is. You have to take every bit with a bit of the asparagus. Surprisingly nice. And, very easy to make.

    Meh. Made as per the recipe and found it bland and uninteresting. I'll try to salvage it as a cold pasta salad by adding some minced onion and roasted red bell peppers.

    My 14 month old son just devoured a huge bowl of this! It's soooo tasty! We also added cherry tomatoes, which added lots of yummy flavor. I used just 1 bunch of asparagus and only had 1/2 log of goat cheese on hand, but it still turned out great!

    Delicious and quick recipe! I only used one pound of asparagus but roasted a pint of grape tomatoes with it and it turned out great.

    This an absolute winner recipe. Fast enough for everyday, yet good enough for company. I added grilled chicken and sliced it up for a bit of protein.
