Steps to make Caramelized Balsamic Goat Cheese Pasta


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 425 °F and prepare a baking sheet.


Season beets


On a baking sheet, toss 6 quartered beets in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped thyme and a big pinch of salt and pepper.




Roast in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until softened and lightly charred.


Cook pasta


In a large pot of salted, boiling water, cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of cooking water and drain.


Cook mushrooms


In a large skillet over high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of oil. Add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until they just begin to darken and caramelize on the edges.


Add garlic


Add 4 cloves of thinly sliced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until aromatic. Remove and transfer to a plate.


Prepare sauce


Return the skillet to medium-high heat and combine 1 cup of balsamic vinegar, 2-3 tablespoons of honey and ½ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and cook for about 5-8 minutes until sauce has reduced to a ⅓ and has a sticky texture.


And pasta and mushrooms


Reduce the heat to low and add the cooked pasta and mushroom and garlic mixture. Stir and toss to coat well in the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, use some of the reserved cooking water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.



Serve immediately and top with roasted beets, ½ cup of crumbled goat cheese, and pomegranate arils, if you wish! Enjoy!

If you're looking for something to brighten up your dinner table, look no further this is exactly what you need. I added a lot more cheese to mine and it was just an amazing dish..please cook this I promise you won't regret it.

Yaretzy Wig

Cooking this was super easy and it turned out amazing.

Farah Fryc

Eat this and the summer pea pasta if you get the chance! Both are honestly the two best pasta recipes here.

Nellie Beckstrand

Wonderful recipe, the taste will make you feel like you're floating almost..the way the mushrooms are made and how the caramelized goat cheese taste will leave you begging for more even after you're done licking the plate!

Raylynn Hoffstadt

Would recommend this for any spaghetti and goat cheese lover out there!

Jolie Boczar

Took me longer to cook because 34 minutes wasn't enough time for my noodles to soften up but eh oh well, it was quite tasty.


I managed to make the pasta just right, usually when I have to cook anything in a pot the bottom gets burned pretty quickly but thanks to the easy instructions everything turned out great!

Grayson Fezza

Love the goat cheese in this I normally don't like the taste but with the rest of the ingredients it was really good.

Asha Shomer

I cooked this up for my mom last Monday and she ate more than the entire pot of spaghetti, absolutely amazing.

Samara Acar

Made this for dinner for me and my husband and he adored this! He said I should think about opening up a resturant with how good my cooking always is, thanks to this website of course.

Could not be happier! After making this and the pumpkin alfredo pasta I became instantly in love with this websites recipes, honestly the best place to find the tasty meals.

Leela Maltby

I wanted to like this and give it a 5 stars but in the end it's kinda mushy and the beats don't go well with the mushrooms in my opinion.

I'll be making this every spaghetti Monday!

The combination of mushrooms and goat cheese is perfectly delicious, couldn't ask for a better meal.

This dish is one of my favorite spaghetti dinners I've ever made since it just taste so damn good.

I really disliked the whole beat aspect of the spaghetti so I added everything but beats and it tasted fine.

If you're second guessing if you should make this or not, don't bother, this is worth the time,effort and money spent, one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
