This easy weeknight recipe is a complete one-dish meal. Cooking the pasta, peas, and asparagus together is efficient, and adding goat cheese at the end creates a creamy sauce.

Amazing! I have been searching for years for an adult way to satisfy a Mac&cheese craving - something flavor balanced, not too heavy, and with some vegetables freshness. This is it! I was interested in the recipe because it had so many ingredients I love, but could not imagine how they would all meld together. The sum is greater than the parts! The nice texture of the asparagus and peas, the refreshing, palette-cleansing mint and pine-nuts combined with the goat cheese, the heat of the cayenne. Perfection. Only changes I make: heat double the garlic in olive oil to mellow it, double to quadruple the cayenne, double the goat cheese. And maybe some extra cayenne sprinkled on my serving. :). YUM!
Yummy!! The whole family loved this. Do not omit the fresh mint-it makes the dish! Its worth it to spend the 💰. Trust me. Great recipe for the spring.
