Shrimp & Goat Cheese Linguine
Easy-to-find ingredients and sweet fresh tarragon put this recipe in a prime position to become a regular favorite.
This dish is a complete meal you can turn to year-round. Canned tomatoes, bright fresh herbs, and ingredients you probably have in your pantry make it easy to pull together no matter what the season. Goat cheese gives the dish creamy tang, and shrimp makes it quick.
Tarragon is a distinctive herb, used often in classic French cooking, with a sweet aroma reminiscent of anise. Its assertive flavor can easily dominate a dish, so if you haven’t cooked with it before, take care you don’t overdo it.
If you want to dress up the dish a little, you can leave the tails on the shrimp — they’ll look prettier. But for easier eating, remove the tails before cooking the shrimp.
Cook linguine in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; drain.
Off heat, toss pasta with goat cheese. Serve pasta immediately.
