Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 12 oz. farfalle pasta
  • 3 oz. creamy mild goat cheese (6 Tbs.)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 11/4 cups creamy tomato soup
  • ½ Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. pine nuts
  • ¼ cup nonfat half-and-half
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • 1 Tbs. dry white wine (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta in la arge pot of boiling water with salt, according to the directions on the package, directions until al dente. Add the peas during the last 3 minutes of cooking.
  2. Drain the pasta and peas in a colander, and set aside. Quickly return the empty pot to the same burner (with the heat off), wait a few seconds until the pot dries, then add the pine nuts. Cook over medium heat until lightly toasted and fragrant (about 1 minute). Transfer the nuts to a plate.
  3. Add the oil to the pot, and sauté the garlic over medium heat until it's just starting to brown (about 15 seconds). Stir in the half-and-half, soup, and wine (if using); bring to a brisk simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has slightly reduced and begins to thicken (about 3 minutes).
  4. Add the cheese and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese has completely melted into the sauce (about 2-3 more minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Stir the pasta with the peas and pine nuts into the sauce in the pot; toss well and serve. Bon appetit!
