Penne With Pesto Cream Sauce and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
15 mins (prep 15)
7 ingredients
2-3 servings
easy to make, and tastes like you put a lot of effort into it. I found the recipe in the Chicago Sun-Times, and modified it a little. You can easily substitute some other kind of pasta for the penne, and add or subtract other ingredients. Adding meat would make it a more complete meal, but it's pretty filling without.
