Asparagus, Spinach, Goat Cheese Pasta Recipe


  • 1 pound spiral-shaped pasta
  • 1 pound slender asparagus spears, trimmed, cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup peas (frozen and thawed or fresh)
  • spinach (frozen, thawed and squeezed dry, or fresh. The amount is really up to you)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon plus more for garnish
  • 1 5 to 5 1/2-ounce log soft fresh goat cheese (the pre-crumbled stuff will not melt as well. Also, the herbed kind sort of messes with the other flavors.)
  • fresh lemon juice, to taste (I like 1 big lemon)
