Penne With Chicken, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

This pasta dish looks and tastes great. It looks stunning served in bowls or large, restaurant-like plates. I love sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil! The pine nuts add a nice touch. Roast the pine nuts in a skillet on low heat. Watch the nuts as they turn brown (and then black) suddenly. Serve this tasty dish with fresh parmesan cheese and a glass of wine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes into thin stripes. Keep the oil.
  2. Heat wok or large skillet. Add 1 tablespoons of the kept oil.
  3. Fry meat in 2-3 portions. Add more oil if necessary.
  4. Add fried meat to the wok again.
  5. Add garlic, tomatoes and cream. Cook on low heat for 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add cooked penne and basil and mix. Leave on stove until penne are warm.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve in bowls and top with roasted pine nuts.

So quick and easy! I don't like penne pasta so we have used bow-tie and angle hair pasta as well. Makes a great dinner for 2 - with plenty left over for lunch the next day.
