Goat Cheese and Arugula Pasta

4 servings

Time to ring in the new year with something fresh and healthy! Nothing screams fresh more to me than green, and this Goat Cheese and Arugula Pasta has lots of it. Tender baby arugula leaves and crispy spring peas pair perfectly with a burst of fresh lemon juice and zest.

Can this be made vegetarian?

Of course! Simply leave out the bacon and this becomes a vegetarian dish. If you choose to do so, you may want to add a bit of salt to make all of the flavors pop. I don't add it originally because the bacon is salty enough.

What other vegetables would pair well?

I think asparagus cut up into bite-sized pieces would be wonderful! I added Josie's Organics baby arugula because I love how light and airy it is.

Any tender veggies would work-- think baby spinach, asparagus, green beans.

This pasta can be served hot or cold!

I’m very glad to be bringing you this post featuring Josie’s Organics Products. I was compensated for my time, but all opinions are 100% my own.
