Bow tie pasta tossed with spinach, tomatoes, goat cheese and olive oil. This is the best pasta recipe in the world! I made it up one day instead of serving a heavy pasta dish. The goat cheese makes this recipe!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 10 ounces spinach, rinsed
  • 1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 8 ounces crumbled goat cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Remove stems from spinach and stack leaves together; chop thin longer strips instead of square chops and set aside.
  2. 2 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and place in a large bowl.
  3. 3 Drizzle olive oil over pasta and add salt and pepper to taste, spinach and tomatoes; gently toss.
  4. 4 Add goat cheese and serve warm or room temperature.

  1. I replaced the goat cheese with crumbled garlic tofu. This was great..... very fresh tasting!
  2. This was quite tasty. I added a sauteed clove of garlic and some chopped basil leaves based on the reviews.
  3. My family including our dog love this dish! I do add fresh sliced garlic to the olive oil and then grill chicken breast to go on top of it. The first night I had made it I had cleaned up dinner and then got a phone call that my daughter had broken her ankle and - Read more ...
  4. This recipe was good but a little bland for flavor. I highly suggest adding garlic basil sun-dried tomatos and a little parmesan cheese when making. Also I used the "garlic and herb goat cheese" and don't recommend it unless you like a LOT of oregano flavor. There was also WAY too much spinach in this - Read more ...
  5. Great recipe. I tossed in a bit of crushed garlic for additional flavor. I was not sure what type of goat cheese to use so I picked chevre -- which was awesome. It made a creamy sauce to complement the spinach and tomatoes.
  6. I used seasoned feta cheese which had sun dried tomatoes and italian seasoning mixed in. This added a nice extra flavor to the pasta though it is also good with plain feta!
  7. I think this recipe would be much better with a little less goat cheese. I used the full 8 oz. and it was way too rich for me. I just couldn't eat very much of it. Maybe it's just me though. Very good otherwise.
  8. I served this pasta dish on Valentines days with filet mignon. It was the perfect companion. Next time I think I might add a little black olive but I can't wait to make it again.
  9. Pretty good - A "light" dish. The goat cheese gets a little "too much " though.
