A quick and easy penne pasta tossed in a creamy sauce packed with the flavors of sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. I can’t help but love a recipe where the sauce can be made in the same time it takes the pasta to cook! Especially on a night when you want need good food fast but don’t have time to spend in the kitchen.
The simple sauce starts with a quick saute of garlic, oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh spinach leaves, then half & half, sour cream and pasta water is mixed in. The starchy water from cooking the pasta thins out the thick sauce and helps it coat and cling to every nook and cranny in the pasta. Chicken or shrimp would be a great addition to!
The tangy sour cream is the perfect counterpoint to the acidity of the chewy tomatoes, the richness of the half & half and the freshness of the spinach.
It’s a delicious combination that comforts and satisfies on every level.
