    Serves 2 people


    • 250g spaghetti, linguine or other long pasta
    • 320g jar of Meredith Dairy Marinated Goat Cheese
    • bunch of broccolini, ends chopped off
    • one lemon, juiced
    • 3 garlic cloves, smashed and thinly chopped
    • bunch of fresh basil, roughly chopped
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 tbsp of chilli flakes
    • olive oil


    • Step 1 Preheat oven to 220 degrees. Boil a big pot of water.
    • Step 2 Put your broccolini on a lined baking tray, and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes, or until crispy.
    • Step 3 When the water is boiling, salt it generously. Cook your pasta al dente, according to package instructions.
    • Step 4 On a large frying pan, heat a tablespoon of olive oil, and add garlic. Fry on medium heat until softened.
    • Step 5 Turn the heat to low. Add 5 cubes of Marinated Goat Cheese, and smash with a spatula into a paste. Add lemon juice and mix, and 1/3 of a cup of the pasta cooking water. The starchiness of the water will help bind the sauce together. Turn the heat off, and season with salt and pepper.
    • Step 6 Once the pasta is cooked, add instantly to the creamy lemon sauce. Add cooking water if desired to the sauce. Mix chopped basil in.
    • Step 7 Assemble the pasta on a plate, and top with charred broccolini. Break an additional cube of Marinated Goat Cheese on top if desired. Drizzle with chilli flakes for extra flavour.
