Spicy Tomato Pasta with Goat Cheese

I came across this delicious pasta over at the Emily's sweet blog So Domesticated.  This pasta is so flavorful and SO easy to put together. Honestly it takes like 15 minutes from start to finish. Now that's my kind of meal, quick and easy to throw together and so yummy to eat!!! I made a few tiny changes to my liking but some of you may not be goat cheese fans which is totally fine you can just leave the cheese off if you prefer. Try this pasta you will not be disappointed!

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 of one Yellow Onion (diced)
1 (14oz) can Chicken Broth
1 (15oz) can Tomato Sauce
3 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
2 small Garlic Cloves (minced)
1 cup Half & Half
1 1/4 tsp. Thyme (dried)
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1/4 tsp. Chili Pepper Flakes
1 lb. Linguine Noodles
Goat Cheese for topping (melts into the pasta it's so yummy)

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add in Linguine and cook to packages directions (about 10-11 min) Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and saute till soft (about 2-3 min.)
Add in tomato sauce, broth, tomato paste, garlic and Half & Half. Stir till well combined.  Now add in seasonings and turn heat to low and let simmer while the noodles cook. When noodles are done cooking,  drain and pour into the sauce. Top pasta off with 1 Tbsp. Goat Cheese and stir it into the hot pasta. It adds such a yummy creamy flavor that our family just loved! You can serve this with a green salad and some french bread for dipping.
