15 Minute Pasta with Tomato Goat Cheese Sauce

The amazing thing about this dinner isn't that it only took 15 minutes to make - all the ingredients were purchased at Walgreens!  Granted, it wasn't your typical Walgreens, I went to the new flagship Walgreens on State Street in Chicago - which sells sushi and grocery items.

This meal hit the spot on a busy night when I had no time to cook.  The goat cheese makes the sauce extra creamy, which contrasted nicely with the chunks of tomato.

Total time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2

You will need:
1 box of Pasta
14.5 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
8 oz Tomato Sauce
2 tablespoons Parmesan
2 oz Goat Cheese

Step 1:
Put water on to boil for the pasta.

Step 2:
Heat the diced tomato in a large skillet.  Let bubble and reduce for 5 minutes.

Step 3:
Add 3/4 box of pasta to the water once it is boiling.

Step 4:
Add the tomato sauce and parmesan and let simmer until the pasta has cooked.

Step 5:
Drain the pasta.  Stir the goat cheese into the sauce.  Then stir in the pasta and serve.
