I absolutely love goat cheese! I’m always trying to find new ways to use it. I decided to swap out traditional Parmesan cheese for goat cheese in this Pasta with Creamy Goat Cheese Tomato Sauce recipe!

I picked up the pasta and Prego Farmers’ Market® Classic Marinara Sauce at Walmart and grabbed the grape tomatoes and basil from the produce section there. The goat cheese is in a separate display that is also right by the produce section.
I haven’t always loved to cook. And, I haven’t always been good at it either. I used to follow recipes step-by-step and would still mess up an entire meal on a regular basis! Somehow, some way all that changed thankfully, but when I develop recipes to share I always try to make them so you can’t mess them up the way I used to!
This recipe is a pretty basic recipe but with a tasty little twist. I used the Prego Farmers’ Market® Classic Marinara Sauce because it contains simple ingredients picked at peak, like what you’d find at a Farmer’s Market! It’s so good that I don’t even bother making my own sauce anymore, but for this Pasta with Creamy Goat Cheese Tomato Sauce recipe, I add a few things to change the flavor profile just a tad! The goat cheese gives it a creamier texture with a little tanginess and the oven roasted grape tomatoes and basil bring out even more of that homemade taste we all love! This is most definitely comfort food at it’s finest!
The best part? This entire meal comes together in 30 minutes or less! It’s a really delicious option for a busy weeknight meal and the leftovers (if you should have any) are just as good the next day for lunch!
