3 Ingredient Recipe: Penne with Goat Cheese and Basil

June 25, 2011

This pasta dish is perfect for warm weather. The best part is that it only requires 3 ingredients to make ( I don't count pantry staples).  This is the basic recipe but you can add ingredients to tailor this dish to your own tastes.  Sun dried tomatoes, fresh cherry tomatoes, black olives, or grilled chicken would all be nice additions.  I sometimes like fresh peas in mine.  All this pasta dish needs is a glass of crisp white wine and maybe a piece of grilled bread.
