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.

*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
