creamy goat cheese pasta recipe

Easy family dinner in less then 30 minutes- that’s the best part about quick pasta dishes. Salmon(wild caught) is a great source of Omega 3 fats and a great addition to pasta, also makes a great combination with goat cheese!

Goat cheese is creamy, flavorful and very affordable (talking about Costco), we love it and i am trying to incorporate it in our menu few times a week.
