Ultra-creamy goat cheese bow ties packed with flavorful caramelized onions and sausage is the perfect pasta dish to put on the table when you want to shake up your pasta dinner game!
The pot o’ carbs I heard your Monday was MADE FOR. Also, I didn’t hear that I just made it up.
Because these bow ties are smothered in freaking GOAT CHEESE SAUCE. With caramelized onions and little sausage bits in between. Face shovin’ 101 right here.
I don’t know about you, but once October hits it’s all downhill as far as comfort food goes. Soups and creamy pastas and caaaaarbs are a 24/7 necessity.
Also gonna go out on a limb and say that these creamy goat cheese bowties are also a 24/7 necessity. For obvious reasons.
I know this pasta totally looks like deceiving fancy food but trust me, it’s SO CHILL food. The caramelized onions are the easiest thing ever to make and let’s be honest: goat cheese makes everything infinitely better, the end.
Really the only major steps here are as follows: >>> a) caramelize up the onions b) cook bowties c) make the goat cheese sauce d) put it all togetha’ e) eat and eat and eat and EAAAT.
The creamy goat cheese sauce is literally so good you will want to bathe in it. Too far?
Obviously you’re gonna wanna top each and every individual bowl with extra goat cheese because we ain’t carb quitters over here.
I would not discourage mountains of these creamy goat cheese bowties, friends. I would in fact, highly encourage you to follow my shining example. >>>
