Pasta Milano

Recipe by Lacy S.

This is my favorite thing at Macaroni Grill. My cousin found this recipe for me and I can't tell you how many times I have made it.

The best! Our family loves it! 36 ounces of bow tie pasta was a lot so I am reducing it to 24 oz. the next time I make it. There was so much pasta, that the sauce wouldn't go very far.
Here are a couple tips that will help you make this wonderful recipe:
-24 oz. of bow tie pasta instead of 36 oz.
-Use jar of sundried tomatoes that come in olive oil and come in a jar (dried ones that come in a bag are just too tough to cut and don't seem as flavorful)
-Use roasted garlic that comes in a jar
-Buy heavy cream, not heavy whipping cream
