The ultimate easy gourmet meal. Ready in 15 minutes, this arugula and goat cheese pasta salad is perfect for picnics and potlucks!



  1. Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta according to the directions. Drain the pasta and pour into a big serving bowl.
  2. Chop arugula and roasted peppers and/or cherry tomatoes.
  3. Pour in goat cheese. Toss with peppers/tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil, a lemon’s worth of juice or a drizzle of vinegar, and salt and pepper. Mix in arugula last.


Make it tomato free: Just add the roasted peppers instead of the cherry tomatoes.
Preparation tips: This is such a flexible recipe, I almost feel silly specifying the amounts. Please, adjust everything to taste. Just don’t skimp on the goat cheese!
