Penne with Green Beans and Goat Cheese!
I'm just starting to get into goat cheese which is actually pretty good if you know what to combine it with. So I found this recipe from that guy Gordon Ramsey (Hell's Kitchen) and it was deeelicious!
1 box penne
salt and pepper to taste
6 T butter
1 red chili seeded and minced
1 rosemary sprig leaves chopped
9 oz green beans trimmed and cut diagonally
olive oil for drizzling
5 oz goat cheese
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts (optional but pretty good)
Boil a large pot of salted water and add pasta. Cook until al dente.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pan, add the chili and rosemary and heat over low heat for 2 minutes. Turn up the heat and add the beans, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring until tender but not too soft.
Drain the pasta and toss with a little olive oil, then mix with the beans. Take the pasta off the heat and mix in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper and top with the pine nuts.
