    Blue, Parmesan, Goat

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the penne and cook until it is tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 12 minutes.
 
Mince the garlic in a food processor. Add the Goat Cheese, cream cheese, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and half of the spinach leaves. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Set the cheese and spinach mixture aside.

Meanwhile, place the remaining spinach leaves in a large bowl.  

Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.  Spoon the pasta atop the spinach mixture over the pasta mixture and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten.  Season the pasta to taste, with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle the Treasure Cave Blue Cheese and Treasure Cave Shredded Parmesan Cheese over and serve.
