An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Walnut and Goat Cheese Pasta

This dish is easy to make and the ingredients all keep for weeks (except for spinach, but you could sub broccoli, zucchini or asparagus, whatever green veggie you have):

whole wheat organic Penne pasta ~1/3 box

Goat cheese about 1/2 of 1 small packet

Dried basil ~2 Tbsp

Olive oil ~3 Tbsp

Walnuts ~1/2 cup, toasted

Spinach (or green vegetable of your choice) ~ 1-2 cups

Salt and pepper to taste


Toast 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (~5 min in oven at 350º spread out on a baking sheet)

[my sister-in-law says to “roast every nut that comes in your house”]

Bring 1/3 box of penne to a boil (~10 minutes)

once pasta is cooked and drained add all of above ingredients and stir thoroughly

*serve immediately to avoid spinach wilting or cheese clumping
