Penne with Sausage and Goat Cheese-Tomato Sauce


Ruth over at Once Upon a Feast has been hosting Presto Pasta Nights for a whole year now. Thanks, Ruth! I really wanted to participate in this week’s roundup–the big PPN birthday–so hopefully I am not too late!

Like any “presto” kind of dish, this meal came together with ingredients I always manage to have on hand (OK, I did have a minor panic attack on Monday when I made pizzas and realized, to my horror, that I was out of goat cheese but I have since remedied that situation). It’s a dish that’s easy to prepare but definitely not lacking in flavor. The goat cheese gives this pasta a creamy consistency (and makes it a pretty color!) and is a bit better for you than heavy cream. Plus, it just gives that little tang of extra flavor. I’m really glad I made enough to take leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

  1. hey elly! i am cooking my way through your archives. made this for dinner tonight – so rich, creamy and delicious! quick question – what kind of salt do you cook with? coarse, kosher, table salt? just curious.

    1. I usually cook with kosher salt but if I am seasoning towards the end (or after cooking) I tend to use sea salt. I only use table salt for baking.
