Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes in Cream Sauce

Through deciding to try out all these different types of recipes I’ve come to realize that I truly know where nothing is in the grocery! I mean I know where the brad and the meat are, but I had to ask the employees and occasionally a stranger where something might be, and something what something was! Such was the case when I tried to find the dun dried tomatoes. I eat pasta like it’s going out of style, mostly because I have this odd habit of buying pasta ALL THE TIME! I may have mentioned it before, but in the 4 years that I have lived by myself I don’t think I’ve ever gone under having at least 5 lbs of pasta on hand. This was a quick dinner fix, taking no more than 30 minutes to both prepare and to fix.

Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes in Cream Sauce
By: Very Best Cooking

2 cups dry penne pasta
8 sun dried tomatoes chopped
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk low fat 2% milk
2 cup shredded Italian style cheese
1 tsp dried basil
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp ground pepper

1. Prepare pasta according to package, adding the sun dried tomatoes to the boiling water for the last two minutes of the cooking time, drain.

2. Combine evaporated milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium sauce pan. Cook over medium-low heat until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

3. Add pasta and sun dried tomatoes to cheese sauce, stir until combined.

*Note* This was good re-heated, but the sauce was really thick and didn’t really melt again after it was once in the fridge. This would be delicious for having a few friends over for dinner
