Goat Cheese Macaroni

Hi All,

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.

Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…

Goat Cheese Macaroni 

SAUCE

  • 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.

Noodles

  • 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.

No goat cheese macaroni

  • FOLLOW above directions.
  • ADD 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika when adding the rosemary.
  • ADD a little more wine or broth.
  • STIR together 1/4 cup sweet rice flour with room temperature water in a operate bowl, until you reach a pasty consistency.
  • WHISK rice flour mixture to sauce 5 minutes before adding the noodles.

Lot’s of ways to create your own unique goat cheese macaroni. I would love to hear your variations on this dish!
