Linguine with Fresh Herbs, Goat Cheese and Smoked Salmon

This Linguine with Fresh Herbs, Goat Cheese and Smoked Salmon is one of the quickest pasta recipes you’ll ever make–and one you’ll want to make again and again.

Ingredients

1 pound linguine pasta
8 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
6 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 green onions minced
½ cup white cooking wine
¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
¼ cup fresh basil chopped
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
2 (6-to 7-ounce) cans smoked salmon, drained (or fresh smoked)
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to boil, lightly salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving ¾ cup of the pasta cooking water.

In a large serving bowl, add the crumbled goat cheese.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and green onions, sauté 1 minute. Stir in the wine and cook, about 2 minutes. Add the parsley, dill and basil. Stir in the reserved pasta cooking water.

Add the pasta to the goat cheese. Pour the herb sauce on top, season with salt and pepper and toss. Add the tomatoes and toss gently.

Flake the smoked salmon on top, gently toss in and serve right away.
