Who doesn’t love a creamy pasta dish? What if we told you it’s possible to create a satisfying, creamy pasta dish without heavy cream, and perhaps more delicious than one smothered in Alfredo sauce? The secret? Goat cheese! Even if you’re not a goat cheese lover, this dish might surprise you. The familiar goat cheese “kick” does not overwhelm the way it does on its own.
For those of you who need more convincing, goat cheese has huge advantages over cheese made from cow’s milk: it contains fewer calories, more protein, more calcium, and for those who are sensitive to dairy, it’s easier to digest than conventional dairy products. So feel free to dig in, guilt-free!
