What Type Of Pasta Is Best For This Recipe?

The star of the recipe is my personal favorite, Mueller’s Fettuccine. 

I am a big fan of  Mueller’s Pasta, because like me, Mueller’s believes what’s inside matters. It’s so much more than just the toppings and sauce! 

Mueller’s Pasta is non-GMO, minimally processed and made with simple, real ingredients like wheat and water.

Mueller’s knows that real, simple ingredients matter in a meal. That’s why they use a simple recipe of the finest wheat & filtered water.

Keeping that in mind, I created an amazing recipe highlighting just a few key ingredients.

How To Make This Creamy Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

To start, we take some juicy, ripe cherry tomatoes,  slice them in half and toss them in olive oil, salt, pepper and freshly minced garlic. 

We roast those tomatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

While the tomatoes are roasting, I boil my Mueller’s Fettuccini Pasta according to the package directions.

While the pasta is cooking, you make the creamy goat cheese sauce at the same time.

This helps to save time and keep this an easy quick 30 minute dinner you can make on a weeknight.

You can make the goat cheese sauce with a dry white wine or chicken broth, either work great.

To season our sauce, we use a little fresh sautéed garlic and herbed goat cheese that already has great seasonings in it.

Then we simply add salt and pepper and whisk until the sauce is nice and smooth. 

This homemade pasta sauce is very quick to make and as soon as it’s done simmering, we toss in our fettuccine until it’s well coated.

Finally, we top our creamy goat cheese pasta with the oven roasted garlic cherry tomatoes while they are still hot from the oven.

To bring it all together, we sprinkle on some fragrant fresh basil for an easy gourmet dinner.

It looks incredibly impressive, and tastes divine, but is a surprisingly simple recipe to make.

Your guests will have no clue it only took you 30 minutes to whip this dish up!

What Else Can I Add To This Creamy Pasta?

This Creamy Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes is a great vegetarian dinner all on it’s own, but can also be served with roasted chicken or as a side to any protein. 

Does This Pasta Reheat Well?

It is best made fresh and not reheated. The homemade goat cheese pasta sauce tends to soak into the pasta if you try to save it in the fridge. 

However, the recipe below is easily divided to make two large servings, instead of four, or doubled to serve a crowd!

I know you are going to enjoy this Creamy Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes just as much as we do!

It’s always a winner in our house and I am sure it will be in yours too! Enjoy!

    I changed this up a bit. I added pancetta and heavy cream. I pan roasted the tomatoes after i cooked the pancetta, then added the cream at the end after the goat cheese. It was really delicious.

    Hello Jessica,
    I believe this was already asked but haven’t been replied yet.
    Is there any substitute that I can make to Goat Cheese? . My kids do not like it.
    Thanks in advance.

          I would try cream cheese or mascarpone in place of the goat cheese. Today I roasted some grape tomatoes plus got herbed goat cheese yesterday, so it’s as if I’m supposed to make this dish!
