Linguine with Roasted Broccoli, Pine Nuts and Goat Cheese

Happy Friday!

I’ve got two Noonday trunk shows this weekend that I’m so incredibly pumped for. My new little business seems to have hit the ground running, and I’m super thankful. I’ve got to squeeze in as much as I can now because next month at this time, I’ll be in pure wedding / honeymoon mode! Wahoo!!

This pasta dish is quick, healthy and delicious. You guys? I realized the only way I really *enjoy* eating broccoli is when it’s roasted. So much better! No stinky sock smell or mushy little trees. Roasted broccoli is absolutely delightful! Especially when it’s tossed it a creamy goat cheese sauce with garlic, pine nuts and linguine.

If you like goat cheese, you’ll love this! Just be sure to enjoy it immediately. It tends to dry out in the fridge. You could substitute the broccoli for cauliflower if you like, or add whatever other roasted veggies strike your fancy!

Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend! You can find this recipe over at PBS Food.

    I bet it would also be great with the fridge full of asparagus I have. Goat cheese, really, can do no wrong. Looks wonderful.

    Have a great weekend, Jenna!

    Ooh I love the thought of all these flavours together! I’m on a huuuuge pine nut kick – crunchy, but so smooth and buttery at the same time. Have a fab weekend Jenna!

    This looks absolutely delicious! You are so right, broccoli (or most any vegetable) tastes so much better when it has been roasted! I’ve been hooked on that method for a while now. 🙂 Can’t wait to try this out! Good luck with your trunk shows this weekend!

    Thanks for bringing back the carbs 😉 also, I know it must have been Harding reading a lot of the criticism yesterday (including my own) but I just wanted to say I think you handled it SO graciously an professionally and it truly shows the kind of person you are!

    If I want to avoid it drying out in the fridge, what can I substitute? Or do to it when I reheat it?

    Delish! At what point do you add the broccoli to the pasta? Am I blind or did you include that step?

    I have my favorite locally made goat cheese, Belle Chevre, in the frig just begging to be used in this dish. YUM!

    I don’t typically keep pine nuts because they are so expensive. Can you suggest an alternative? I usually use a mix of walnuts and almonds in my pesto in place of pine nuts.

    Mmmm this looks delicious. My husband just asked if we could eat broccoli this week. I know, silly right? But, we are on a health kick these days and perhaps this is how we should eat our broccoli. Thank you so much for the recipe. Also, I am looking forward to hearing how your workshop on dating with intention goes. I recommended it to a friend.

    I saw you strolling Chestnut Street yesterday! I really wanted to introduce myself and tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your blog these last few years but my little kids were cranky and hungry so the timing didn’t quite work. Oh well. Sorry, unrelated to your post here but just wanted to say hello! Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

    This looks excellent! Heads up… I think in Directions #3 it should be ” Add the hot linguine and roasted BROCCOLI.” (instead of garlic) It’s obvious what to do, but I did noticed that and wanted to let you know. Your recipes are always phenomenal. I send lots of people here because truly, I often try recipes and have to figure out alterations to make them actually work. Your recipes – I’ve never tried one that didn’t work great exactly as they are. Thank you!
