Advance preparation: Combine sauce ingredients. This may completed up to 8 hours before you begin the final cooking steps.
Final Cooking steps: Crumble the goat cheese. Chop the cilantro. Bring 4 quarts of water to boil. Lightly salt the water, cook the pasta. When pasta loses its raw texture but is still slightly firm, drain in a colander.
Return the empty pasta pot to the stove over high heat. Add 2 T olive oil. When the oil becomes hot, add the pasta and the sauce. Toss until evenly combined and well heated.
Taste and adjust the seasonings, especially for the salt. Transfer to a heated platter or a heated dinner plate. Sprinkle on the goat cheese, cilantro and pumpkin seeds. Serve at once.
