Pesto Salami and Goats Cheese pasta

This Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta is one of those last minutes throw-together meals that just worked.

Pesto Salami Goats Cheese Pasta sounds like a mouthful and it is exactly that…. a mouthful. Bold flavors, pesto, salami, goats cheese, yet they seem so happy to all be together in this dish. We often speak about balance of flavors. Well, here we have the saltiness from the salami, the bitterness from the pesto, the creamy sourness from the goats cheese and the sweet pasta. Just perfect.

With the outbreak of the dreaded Listeriosis, I am reluctant to buy any processed meat and not only the brands that were highlighted and withdrawn from the shelves. I have lost my appetite for it really. It leaves me and you as customers in a bit of a predicament. Luckily I have my trusted Klein Merino and my family and I are having delicious meats, which we can trust. These salami sticks are delicious, I have to literally hide them from my family. The problem is, I am running out of hiding places.

So, you are more than welcome to make your own pesto, but it is also perfectly ok to buy a jar of Pesto Princess Pesto. They have vast array of flavors.
