Pasta with Herbed Goat Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes

I found it! I highly recommend this; it's delicious. Probably not a good meal if you're looking for a ton of protein, but delicious nonetheless.

Pasta with Herbed Goat Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes

12 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
6 tablespoons (3 ounces) garlic and herb-flavored goat cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (about 1 pint)
2/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain; place in a large bowl. Add goat cheese, basil, salt, and pepper to pasta; stir until well blended.

While pasta cooks, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add tomatoes; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add broth; cook 1 minute. Add tomato mixture to pasta mixture; toss gently to combine.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups)
