Goat Cheese Rigatoni AlfredoThe Sunday Supper team has a challenge this week.  Meals in Five Ingredients or Less.  Could we do it?  I have to admit, when our host Amber from Mama’s Blissful Bites first brought it up, I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to come up with good dishes with five ingredients or less.  This is a challenge every busy mom faces.  I thought about how much my kids love my Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce over Rigatoni. It is one of the simplest and easiest dinner that I put together but Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce is requested time and time again.

As usual, the Sunday Supper team stepped up to the challenge and created over 50 recipes where five ingredients come together to make a scrumptious meal.   Get ready for a Sunday Supper Showcase of the fastest, tastiest five ingredient meals you’ve ever seen.  This is a Sunday Supper you don’t want to miss!  Join us tonight at 7 pm Eastern Time as we share our favorite tips and tricks to creating meals in five ingredients or less.

I love to make Goat Cheese Rigatoni Alfredo because it is so easy and versatile.  It is perfect for a Sunday Supper side dish paired with London Broil, Chicken and Veggies.  It is also one of our favorite Weekday Suppers.  We add peas, broccoli, leftover diced chicken or salmon.  The combinations are endless and it is a great way to have dinner on the table and the kids out the door to practice.

I think I also may add my favorite roasted garlic and basil Chevre instead of plain goat cheese. Holy yum. My mouth is watering already. Must go to store. now.

Love the use of goat cheese & garlic in this recipe. Been using goat cheese a lot more these days & this looks like a simple easy healthy dish to fix. Thanks for sharing Isabel. Looks yummy !

Okay…now I have to go back to the grocery store to get some goat cheese because I want to make this dish this week. My husband and I both LOVE goat cheese. I never thought to make alfredo with it. Awesome Isabel.


Nicole @ Daily Dish Recipes October 1, 2012 at 8:22 am

This dish looks fabulous. I love Rigatoni so much I could eat it daily – pasta is my ultimate comfort food, as well as my go-to when I need a quick week night meal.
This is getting filed into our upcoming menu plans because it sounds delicious, easy and seems like the perfect 5 ingredient meal!
Thank you for such a great recipe!


Tara October 1, 2012 at 10:46 am

You had me at ‘goat cheese’…

Simple recipes with quality ingredients always work! This has been a great #sundaysupper!

Goat cheese alfredo! What’s not to love. This dish looks scrumptious; I can’t wait to try this recipe.


Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom October 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Whoa! this is a heavy pasta!!! Looks great!


Amanda October 4, 2012 at 11:07 am

Goat cheese – enough said – delicious!


Carla October 4, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Oh I never would have thought to use goat cheese in Alfredo! I’ve done cream cheese before. I have flavored goat cheese in the fridge (garlic and herb I think?) so that would make this even more spectacular.
