Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce
Mac & Cheese is a standard favorite, but we have mixed it up with this Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce recipe. We’ve made traditional cheese sauce with Carnation Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk and changed-up the cheese and pasta while adding sun-dried tomatoes for a luscious Mac & Cheese inspired dish.
- 2 cups (8 oz.) dry penne pasta
- 8 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
- 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
- 2 cups (8-oz. pkg.) shredded Italian-style four-cheese blend
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I made this last night and with a side of greenbeans it was fantastic. The flavors mixed so well and the creamsause was amazing even before I added the sun-dried tomatos. I will definatley make this again and I am looking foreword to the left overs.
After reading previous reviews I only used 1/2 a can of evaporated milk & 1/2 can drained diced tomatoes instead of sun dried. It was delicious & there weren't any leftovers in my house.
I made this a couple nights ago - I guess I don't like sun-dried tomatoes. Will try it again and play around with it...
Beyond Mac N Cheese
This is so not your grandma's mac n cheese! This is beyond delicious.....so creamy, so full of flavor. The only that I changed was to add grilled chicken to make this a one dish meal. My company was amazed and said they felt like they were in a fancy Italian restaurant. Don't buy bottled Alfredo sauce - this is quick, easy and tastes MUCH better!
I MAKE IT LAST NIGHT.I USE WHAT EVER FOUR CHEESE BLEND I FIND.I AND SHRIMP TO MINE.IT WAS SO GOOD.MY KIDS LOVE IT WITH THE SHRIMP.
