Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce

I love a good pasta, really love. I love pasta more than one should. It's so versatile and it doesn't take many ingredients to make a delicious dish. This is a perfect example.

Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce


2 cups penne pasta (or any kind you have)

1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

1 12oz can Carnation Evaporated Milk

2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese

1 tsp dried basil

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp ground black pepper


1. Prepare pasta according to directions.

2. Meanwhile, combine milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder, and pepper in saucepan and cook over medium heat until cheese is melted and well-blended.(it takes several minutes but it does happen!) Add in tomatoes.

3. Add pasta to sauce and stir until well mixed. It is best served immediately. If you notice it thicken a little from sitting for a few minutes, just add a splash of milk to thin it back out.


I turned my pasta into a whole meal by adding chicken to it. All I did was season chicken cutlets with a little basil and a little chicken season and browned them in a skillet. I cut them up into bite-size pieces and added them to the sauce at the end. It was delicious and so quick and easy! It would definitely be tasty with shrimp as well, and I think I may put mushrooms in it next time too. Serve with a side salad and you've got a quick, easy, and delicious meal! I hope you enjoy! :)
