Baked Zucchini with Goat Cheese

zuchinni

 

This simple, five-ingredient recipe works wonders as an impressive side or vegetarian main dish. As a tasty alternative, omit the mint and baste the cheese-filled squash with garlic-infused olive oil, using a fresh rosemary sprig as your basting brush.

Ingredients:
8 medium zucchini
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for the parchment paper
4 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint, chopped
Ground black pepper

Method:
Preheat the oven to 350°F or prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Cut 8 squares of foil, each big enough to completely wrap a zucchini, and line foil with parchment paper. Brush each square lightly with oil. Cut a skinny wedge from the length of each zucchini. Divide cheese among zucchini, pressing into the openings. Divide mint among zucchini and press into cheese. Drizzle each zucchini with oil and sprinkle with pepper. Wrap each zucchini in foil and bake or grill until tender, turning zucchini frequently, about 15 minutes on the grill or 25 minutes in the oven.

Serves 6
With 5 ingredients and about 25 minutes, this is a very simple, yet company-worthy pasta dish. Lemon zest, green peas and a hint of rich flavor from the cheese lighten the hearty whole grain pasta.

Ingredients:
1 pound whole grain fusilli pasta
2 cups frozen peas
8 ounces Humboldt Fog goat cheese, rind removed
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 1/2-inch wide strips

Method:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add fusilli and cook until al dente, about 12 minutes. Three minutes before the pasta finishes cooking, add peas. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, then drain pasta and peas well.

Meanwhile, place cheese in a large bowl and crumble it into small pieces. Add lemon zest. Stir in drained pasta and peas and toss until cheese has melted and evenly coated the pasta. If cheese doesn’t melt completely, add a few tablespoons of reserved pasta cooking water and continue tossing. Stir in prosciutto and serve.
