Am I the only one who has endless dreams of dancing in penne pasta?
Well if you’re in any category above or below my pasta sanity level, I guarantee you’ll enjoy this. This recipe came about on a night after my gym workout kicked my butt and my cravings were kicking it even more. There’s something about pasta that just screams homeyness that it’s one of those feelings you just have to give in to.
What I love about this recipe is that it’s not only simple, but it’s *get ready* as low cal as you can get.
YES. I said the evil word on a fatty food blog – low cal! And it’s not even health month! But really, minus the pasta, the other ingredients really aren’t very burdening. So you’re able to enjoy this deliciousness wrapped in a blanket watching tv while all being able to walk not roll off of the couch.
You can always swap the milk for heavy cream but 1) I like my waist 2) I had milk. It would make it creamier and provide a thicker sauce. The thing that does it for me is the sundried tomatoes. I have a slight obsession with them and will put it in anything minus cereal. And Orange Juice. Okay, okay, you get my point. They provide a burst of tangy freshness without overwhelming the creamy sauce; something I’d like to oh-so-modestly title the perfect combination.
So, so very modest.
The best part? It’s perfect for two! Or one, lonely, life-dependent craving…
