I was actually off of work today, so I had the luxury of doing quite a bit of cooking for dinner.
I made some baked herbed chicken breasts, salad and snicker doodle cookies.
(Cookies during the week?!? My family is livin' large, huh?)
I added this Penne Rosa recipe to the mix, which was the perfect side with chicken.
And, it was super simple!
Denise's Penne Rosa
Basic ingredients: butter, heavy cream, can of tomatoes, basil and garlic.
Plus the penne pasta, which you should start cooking first, as this goes together quickly.
When draining the canned tomatoes, be sure to reserve a quarter of a cup of the juice.
After melting the butter, and sauteing the garlic for just a minute or two,
add the tomatoes, reserved juice and basil.
Cook on high until boiling. Cook long enough to reduce the liquid.
Add the 2/3 cup of heavy cream, stirring.
Lower the heat and cook long enough to warm through.
Toss in the pasta and garnish with some grated Parmesan cheese.
