  • 3/4 cup Organic Marinara Sauce
  • 1 1/2 oz Soft Goat Cheese Log
  • 5 oz Whole Grain Fettuccine
  • 2 cups Baby Arugula, Fresh
  • 1/2 tsp Grated lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp Pistachios, Shelled, Roasted & Salted


1 Add the marinara sauce and goat cheese (or plain dairy-free cream cheese-style spread) to a blender. Cover and puree. Set aside.
2 Cook the fettuccine (or linguine) according to package directions until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.
3 Return the pasta to the dry pot over medium heat. Add the pureed sauce and toss to coat, cooking for about 1 1/2 minutes. Add the reserved cooking liquid for thinner consistency. Add the arugula and toss to just combine and just-wilt the arugula.
4 Transfer the pasta to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the lemon zest (if using) and pistachios.
