Although there are only a handful of ingredients in this recipe that doesn’t mean it is lacking flavor. The key to this are the onions that make the base for the sauce. They are cooking in plenty of extra virgin olive oil, and then braised in vegetable stock. This creates a really wonderful emulsion of flavor.

When cooking the pasta ensure you set the timer for 2 minutes less than the suggested cooking time on the packet, this means you can finish cooking it in the sauce where it will soak up all the delicious flavors.

Serving Suggestion:

Side: To make the most of this goats cheese pasta, serve this dish with a simple side of toasted ciabatta slices. They add a nice crispness to your meal and also work as a way to mop up any remaining sweet onion and goats cheese.

Wine: This is a great dish to pair with wine! Any wine. Peas and goats cheese work wonderfully with white, red or rosé. You want a fresh, unoaked young wine. And whatever you pick serve it lightly chilled. Our recommendation would be a Sauvignon Blanc, Provençal rosé or Syrah (just remember to lightly chill it).
