Angel Hair with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese


I wanted a quick pasta for dinner, and this was a recipe from Food Network I hadn't tried. It's a Giada De Laurentis recipe. It was very tasty, although I thought it only needed about half of the called for quantity of tomatoes.

Angel Hair with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese
4-6 servings

1 (10 oz) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped(oil reserved)
1 small onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup tomato paste
2/3 cup dry white wine
8 oz angel hair pasta
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 oz soft fresh goat cheese, coursely crumbled
2 Tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

Heat 2 Tbsp of the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes in a heavy large skillet over med heat. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the wine and sun-dried tomatoes and simmer until the liquid reduces by half, about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of cooking liquid. Add the pasta to the tomato mixture and toss to coat, adding some reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the goat cheese and parsley and stir. Mound the pasta into bowls and serve.
