Avocado Goat Cheese Pasta Recipe

I love this pasta because it has all of my favorite things: pasta (duh), avocado, goat cheese, basil, garlic, and tomatoes. I also add a little fresh lemon juice to brighten things up! The avocado and goat cheese come together to create an extra creamy sauce. The sauce is so creamy it is DREAMY!

I was worried our boys would turn their nose up at this one, but they love it! Ok, Caleb takes off the tomatoes, but they both gobble up the pasta part! Score! I like the tomatoes because they add a pop of color. I guess Caleb doesn’t care if his food is pretty:)

If you want an easy dinner recipe this week that the entire family will love, make my Avocado Goat Cheese Pasta! It is so good and you can’t beat the 20 minutes part!

  1. I made this over the weekend for a camping trip.  I made the sauce beforehand and sliced the tomatoes.  All I had to do was boil the water at our campsite, cook the pasta and toss together.  Everyone loved it.  Thanks for the recipe!

  2. This was very good. The only alteration was using a sharp herbed goat cheese instead of plain. I think I will use less cheese next time or a mild goat cheese instead. It was very very rich. The sauce would be amazing as a salad dressing or dip too. Thank you for the recipe!

  3. how many days can this go before it gets bad? for example, I like to meal prep for the week. Will it be ok that long?

  4. Is there any chance that the avocado will brown if made ahead of time? Considering making this for a dinner party this week but would love to prepare ahead of time! Thanks!
