Cooking: Penne Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes



 I noticed I haven't posted anything about cooking/recipes here yet. :) 
I've been in a cooking mood lately so earlier I pulled up this recipe online. I've been oggling at this pasta for months now on Pinterest. I looked for the recipe on Google and voila I was off to the market to get the ingredients. 

I got the recipe from here. Thanks to this website for the recipe. ;)


PENNE PASTA with SUN-DRIED TOMATOES RECIPE:
  • 2 cups (8 oz) dry penne pasta
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 (12 fl oz) can Nestle Carnation Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 2 cups shredded Italian-style four-cheese blend ( I used the five-cheese blend instead..)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
♥ DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. (I like mine al dente ;) )
  2. Add sun-dried tomatoes to boiling pasta water for the last two minutes of cooking time. Drain.
  3. Combine evaporated milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder and ground pepper in a medium saucepan.
  4. Cook over medium-heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. ( I overcooked mine so it looked clumpy on the picture. Haha!)
  5. Remove from heat and add the pasta and sun-dried tomatoes the the sauce.
  6. Stir and enjoy! :P

That was our lovely lunch earlier. Overall, I love how it turned out. It was so creamy and delicious! 

PS: Currently, I am trying to organize my posts. I wonder if you have noticed that there are tabs now located at the top of this page. ;) It's a lot of organizing to do! :P

  9. Mmmmmm... I love creamy pasta!! I'll most probably have to google first before I follow your recipe. There's a lot of ingredients that I lack... I wonder if they can be substituted with something else?
