Penne Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Happy Monday y'all!

I'm going to share with you an amazing recipe I found on Pinterest!
Best part?
It was approved by my very picky husband :)


2 cups (8 oz.) dry penne pasta
8 sun dried tomatoes, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
1 can (12 fl. oz.) evaporated milk
2 cups (8 oz. pkg.) shredded, Italian style four cheese blend
(I used Kraft Italian Five Cheese Blend with a touch of Philadelphia cream cheese!)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


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

2. Meanwhile, combine evaporated milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder, and pepper in medium saucepan.  Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.  Remove from heat.

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

Super easy, and anything with 2 cups of cheese in it has to be good right?!

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!
