  • Summary

    This creamy pasta is light on dairy and heavy on veggies, using just a small amount of goat cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. I used whole-wheat pasta but a brown rice pasta would work really nicely for a gluten-free option.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound whole-wheat linguine, cooked according to the package (feel free to substitute brown rice pasta for a gluten-free option)
    • ¼ cup reserved pasta water
    • 3 large red bell peppers
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 medium white onion, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 large fennel bulb, chopped
    • ½ cup low-sodium vegetable stock
    • 6 ounces goat cheese
    • ¼ - ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (use ½ teaspoon if you like a spicier pasta)
    • Coarse salt, to taste
    • Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
    • ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for garnish
    • Fresh basil, torn, for garnish
    • Sea salt flakes, for garnish (I used Maldon)
