Magazine Monday #20: Spicy Tomato and Goat Cheese Penne (Plus a Kitchen-Aid Mixer Giveaway!)

Happy Magazine Monday!

You guys?  

I love pasta.

I'm not really supposed to eat pasta, so I don't have it often, but when I do, I enjoy the hell out of it.

I'm not saying I made this pasta dish on Saturday, and it was gone by Sunday night.

But I'm also not not saying that.

Dennis doesn't like cherry tomatoes, so I was on my own with this one.  And when I'm left alone with pasta?

It's a massacre.

This recipe was in Real Simple magazine, and it was actually one of those things like, "Here are three things you can do with penne pasta!"

Let's just say I'm really glad I chose the one I did.

Also, side note, if you wanted to make this recipe and sprinkle it with Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning?  No one would be mad.

Make it for a potluck.  Make it for a midnight snack.  Just make it and enjoy it!
