Pasta with Goat Cheese and Asparagus

Super Easy, this recipe was adapted from a Martha Stewart Recipe. Asparagus is in season and on sale and who doesn’t love goat cheese?

2T Olive Oil

1lb Asparagus washed and trimmed

120z Pasta (I used corkscrews)

2T Butter

5oz Goat Cheese (use the good stuff, I like Chevre)

1/2c reserved pasta water

Salt and Black Pepper

Chopped Chives

Preheat the oven to 400, toss Asparagus with Olive Oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 5-7 minutes (depending on the size of your asparagus) Meanwhile boil your pasta in salted water  until al dente. Drain pasta reserving 1/2 cup of liquid.  Put Pasta back into pot, Add Butter, Goat Cheese and Pasta water ( add slowly, you may not need it all) Chop asparagus into bite size pieces and add to pasta. Garnish with black pepper and chopped chives
