10 min 20 min 30 min 6


1 cup Basil, fresh (chopped)
1/4 tsp Black pepper
3 clove(s) Garlic (finely chopped)
3/4 cup Goat cheese, semi-soft
1 medium Lemon (cut into 6 wedges)
3 tbsp Olive oil
450 gm Spaghetti, whole-wheat, dry (cooked)
6 tomato Roma tomatoes (seeded and chopped)
1/2 tsp Salt


Preheat grill to medium heat. Cook pasta in pot of water for 6 minutes or according to package.

Cut one dozen 8×12″ pieces of aluminum foil. Layer foil so that you are using 2 per packet. In a bowl, toss together pasta, chopped tomato, basil, salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil. Spoon one serving of pasta mixture (about 1 1/4 cups) into the centre of each packet. Squeeze lemon wedge over pasta before adding the lemon to the packet. Spoon a few teaspoons of goat cheese into packet.

Bring long edges of foil together, then roll it up to secure it. Roll edges of packet to form a closed space (do not squeeze out all of the air).

Reduce grill heat to low, then place packets on grill. Cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking packets halfway through cooking.

Remove from grill and serve immediately.
