Goat Cheese Pasta with Lemon

Here's another really quick weekday meal, also from a UK food mag - probably Waitrose, but I can't remember for sure. It's simple, tasty and filling - and I'll be making it again. I've augmented quantities a bit, the original recipe was even heavier on the fats.

Goat Cheese Pasta with Lemon
Serves 2, generously

150 g dried pasta spirals
150 g chevre goat cheese, in two slices
15 g butter
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
peel of one lemon + 2 tbsp of lemon juice
50 g rocket

Turn the oven to "grill". Cook the pasta according to instructions. Grill the cheese for 4-5 minutes, it should melt a bit and bubble.

Melt butter and olive oil in a saucepan, fry the garlic gently. Add the lemon peel and juice. Toss with the pasta and the rocket, season with salt and pepper. Top with the melted cheese.
