Pear, goat cheese and cured ham pasta


So….this is nothing short of wonderful. I can thank my lovely blogger friend Rachel at for this recipe. I used a Spanish cured ham instead of the prosciutto that is used in the original recipe.

Time: 30 minutes (prep + cooking) | Serves: 4


1 package of whole grain pasta
8 oz. of prosciutto
2 red anjou pears
1 onion, diced
2 tbsp. of garlic, minced
2 oz. of goat cheese
1 tbsp. of olive oil
1 tbsp. of butter
1 tsp. of oregano
1 tsp. of crushed red pepper
S+P, to taste

How to:

Cook pasta to al dente, drain
In a saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat
Add onion + S+P, cook for 3-4 minutes
Add garlic, cook for another 1-2 minutes
Add pear + prosciutto, let warm through
Add pasta + butter back to the pot it was cooked in
Combine with pear + prosciutto mix + oregano + crushed red pepper + S+P
Stir in goat cheese letting coat all of the noodles
Serve hot with extra cheese
Slap your partner with leftover noodles just for kicks

Enjoy! Xxxx Natascha

  1. I love goat cheese and have some baked ham in the freezer left over from Easter. I’ll definitely be trying this next week.

  2. I just noticed the last sentence in the recipe. Since I’ll be serving this to my daughters and two teenaged grandchildren, I’m not saying a word about slapping anybody with noodles – I’m afraid they would do it.

  3. Just wanted to let you know I made this dish today with cured ham and my two daughters and I loved it. I will definitely be making it again.
