This gluten free goat cheese macaroni is such a great splurge! So creamy, rich, and full of flavor! It has just the right amount of tangy, tarty, smokey, and salty gooey goodness!
I have made this without the cheese before. It’s still packed with aromatic goodness! We just add a few different ingredients which I will elaborate on at the end of this post. The fresh rosemary that offers it’s unique, rich, and pungent pine-like flavor is still a definite must have for both recipes.
This recipe was adapted from the popular Micheal Symon’s recipe that he shared on The Chew show.

Goat Cheese Macaroni
- SAUTE 1/2 finely diced onion, 2 gloves of finely diced garlic, and red pepper flakes in coconut oil with some salt.
- STIR in 1/4 cup finely diced fresh rosemary. Let it release all the goodness for a minute.
- ADD 1 cup of white wine; let simmer for a couple minutes, stirring occasionally. (You could use broth)
- ADD a can of coconut milk and 1 package smoked goat cheese.
- Boil package of brown rice penne pasta according to directions with salt.
- ADD a bundle of trimmed/chopped fresh asparagus when noodles are al dente; boil 1 additional minute. Not any longer because you just want to shock the veg. to retain it’s nutrients.
- DRAIN reserving 1/4 cup of pasta liquid and combine the noodles with the sauce; add a little bit of EVOO & S/P.
- ADD the reserved pasta liquid if it seems dry or not thick enough.
Optional: ADD a package of chopped prosciutto and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. This is worth the crispy salty goodness!
Optional: ADD some already cooked chicken to make this goat cheese macaroni a one pot meal.
