Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo Pasta

When Joe over at Culinary in the Country posted this recipe on facebook, I thought it looked amazing! He mentioned that he used evaporated milk instead of heavy cream. I had some evaporated milk in the fridge leftover from when I made Cinnamon Corn a while back, and I had no idea what I was going to do with it until that moment. I mean…goat cheese and pasta!? How can you go wrong? This was a really easy recipe to put together, and it was fantastic! It was creamy and tangy, and the flavor of the basil really pulls it all together. This is definitely going to be a repeat recipe in our house!

Bowl of pasta topped with Parmesan and parsley.
