There are a lot of great cheeses out there, and goat cheese is at the top of that list. There are of course delicious hard goat cheeses, but soft goat cheese is what we're going to talk about today. It's the creamiest of the creamy cheeses, and it's got personality too, which comes across in its tangy flavor.

While we could easily eat this cheese with a spoon -- don't judge -- or smeared on a nice crusty piece of bread with a drizzle of honey, goat cheese really comes alive when you use it in the kitchen. It has the ability to liven up a grilled cheese, reinvent a margarita pizza or give a new tangy twist to pasta. Check out what we're talking about with the most glorious recipes below.
