Herb Casacarecce

Updated: May 5, 2021

This simple creamy pasta can be served warm or room temp. It’s a great great weeknight meal that can be ready in under 30 minutes. Since it’s just as delicious at room temp it also is a great make ahead dish for cookouts. Try this instead of the old pasta salad with Italian dressing. It serves 4-6 for main course and 8-12 as a side dish.


1 lb package Casarecce Pasta (cooked al dente)

1/2 cup Herbed Goat Cheese

1/4 cup Crispy Prosciutto

1/4 cup Crushed Pistachios

2 tablespoons Italian Parsley (thinly sliced)

1 Sea Salt


Pre-heat oven to 350.

Cook pasta to al dente. Reserving some pasta water.

While pasta is cooking tear up prosciutto into bite size pieces and place on a baking tray. Cook in 350 oven for about 5-10 minutes until crispy. Keep an eye on it the first time you make this so you do not over cook.

Crush pistachios, just a bit. I just put them on a cutting board with a paper towel over them and hit gently with the flat side of a meat tenderizer.

Put pasta in serving dish and mix in Herb Goat Cheese. Stir to coat, adding olive oil, and salt to taste.

Top with crispy prosciutto, crushed pistachios, & parsle
