This was excellent! I've made it twice in one week and both times it was gobbled up. Very light pasta dish for summer. Even my dad, who has to have meat, loved it and asked for more! Angel hair and thin spaghetti can also be used. Didn't have goat cheese the second time around and it was fine, but will definitely use it in the future as it does give the dish an extra unique taste.

As other reviewers have noted, this recipe is fairly lacking in flavor apart from that contributed by the goat cheese. However, it is a good base for experimentation. On a whim, I sauteed some onion and red bell pepper with olive oil and red wine vinegar, then added that to the mix. The flavors complemented each other very well once there was a sweeter element introduced. Overall - good, but not great.

This was really delicious - definitely a keeper for me! I mixed the lemon and goat cheese up with everything rather than just leaving it on top, and it was really tasty.
