When you add goat cheese sauce to stir fried mushrooms and red onions, the flavors meld together and complement the dish so well.

You just have to try this goat cheese infused with mushroom flavor to know what I mean!

I love both of those ingredients separately, but together they are out of this world!

And, not to mention, the flavor you get from adding sundried tomatoes to the sauce, just takes this to the next level!

You can serve this versatile goat cheese and sundried tomato sauce with penne or other pasta shapes, or with spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.

We tend to favor the zucchini noodles, but this is also excellent on top of ravioli, tortellini or gnocchi.

Ingredients in Goat Cheese Sundried Tomato Pasta

  • Goat Cheese — for this dish, we use soft, unripened, 12% goat cheese.
  • Milk — use 3.25% homogenized milk, not skim or 1%, to ensure the sauce is creamy.
  • Red Onion — diced red onion, or you can substitute yellow or white onions.
  • Sundried Tomatoes — you can purchase sundried tomatoes in oil, just drain well and slice them in thin strips, julienne style or in larger pieces if you like.
  • Mushrooms — you can purchase pre-sliced white mushrooms to save time. You can try it with other types of mushrooms (cremini, brown, button, etc.) that you like.
  • Oil — we use avocado oil for this dish, you can substitute another oil if you like.
  • Salt — Himalayan salt, ground.
  • Pepper — black pepper, freshly ground.

Ingredients in Zucchini Noodles:

  • Zucchini — two medium sized or one large should be enough for two people, if you are going to serve this on top of zucchini noodles.
  • Garlic — one clove garlic, minced.
  • Lemon Juice — freshly squeezed.
  • Oil — we like avocado oil, but you can use your preferred oil.

Variations — instead of zucchini noodles, you can serve this with Instant Pot spaghetti squash, penne or other pasta shapes. It’s easy to cook pasta or spaghetti squash in an Instant Pot.

How To Make Goat Cheese Sundried Tomato Pasta

This is a pretty easy recipe to make, and seems like a lot more work than it is. If you are able to multi task, then it goes super quick.

STEP 1: Stir fry onions and mushrooms. Heat half of the oil in a pan and add the onions and mushrooms. Let them cook, stirring frequently until onions are soft and mushrooms are cooked well.

STEP 2: Meanwhile, make your goat cheese and milk sauce on the stove top.

Combine goat cheese and milk in a medium sauce pan on the stove top. You can break down the goat cheese into the milk, using a whisk. Melt the cheese slowly on low heat, and make sure it doesn’t burn. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside.

STEP 3: Combine goat cheese and milk sauce with the stir fried onions, mushrooms and sundried tomatoes. Let it simmer, mix well and get ready to enjoy with your choice of noodles or veggie noodles!

STEP 4: Make your zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash or pasta shapes (ideally, meanwhile your sauce is cooking, to save time).

You can quickly spiralize zucchini with a hand held vegetable spiralizer, or similar tool.

Then, just toss the zucchini into an Instant Pot on sauté mode for a quick cook with some oil and extra flavor if you prefer (lemon juice, garlic). Don’t cook for too long, the zucchini should be tender crisp but not too soft.

Alternatively, cook spaghetti squash in your Instant Pot.
