Adapted from Bon Appetit As it turns out, goat cheese makes a really great quick, creamy pasta sauce. And whether you blanche your pasta with asparagus or you swap in fava beans or string beans or seriously, you name it, this comes together so quickly that I forgave it for not winning any beauty contests.

Recipe Ingredients for Egg Noodles with Lemon, Goat Cheese & Asparagus

1 pound egg noodles
1 pound asparagus spears
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon peel
2 teaspoons fresh tarragon
5 1/2 ounces goat cheese
2 T lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Egg Noodles with Lemon, Goat Cheese & Asparagus

  1. Cook your pasta in a large pot of well-salted water until it is almost tender, or about three minutes shy of what the package suggests. Add asparagus and cook until firm-tender, another two to three minutes. Drain both pasta and asparagus together, reserving one cup of pasta water.

  2. Meanwhile, combine olive oil, lemon peel, tarragon and cheese in a large bowl, breaking up the goat cheese as you put it in. Add hot pasta and asparagus to bowl, along with a couple slashes of the pasta water. Toss until smoothly combined, adding more pasta water if needed. Season genersously with salt and pepper, and lemon juice if you feel it needs a little extra kick. (We did.)
