Didn’t get to finish my original rating.. I loved how quick and easy this was. I added some ricotta because didn’t have enough goat cheese and it still turned out great. Also used both asparagus and Brussels sprouts (cut in half) - yum! Adding veggies to the boiling pasta is genius! I made this as a side dish for fish so the lemon flavor worked well. Would make it again as main course. Read More
