Pasta with Fresh Thyme, Garlic & Goat Cheese

Garlic? Check! Thyme? Amazing! Goat Cheese? Irresistable! Put it all together and you've got a whole lot of Awesome!!! This recipe is so simple and so tasty, you may never make spaghetti and marinara again:) Serve this with some greens and crusty bread and you'll be a happy camper.

Serves 2


  • 1 package fresh pasta (fettucini or linguini)
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme - leaves picked
  • A good handful of goat cheese
  • 2 Tbls olive oil

  1. Cook the garlic cloves unpealed in a good sized skillet, turning every so often, for 15 minutes (this is making roasted garlic without turning the oven on!)
  2. Put some salted water on to boil while you cook the garlic
  3. When the garlic's done, peel it
  4. Put the pasta in and cook al dente
  5. Drain the pasta and toss it in the skillet with the garlic, thyme, goat cheese and olive oil. Mix it up good, bashing up the soft garlic a bit and getting it all mixed together
  6. Enjoy!
