Yumm Yummmm YUM!

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.
