    Law School Chef's Note:

    easy to make, and tastes like you put a lot of effort into it. I found the recipe in the Chicago Sun-Times, and modified it a little. You can easily substitute some other kind of pasta for the penne, and add or subtract other ingredients. Adding meat would make it a more complete meal, but it's pretty filling without.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook penne according to directions, about 9 minutes for al dente.
    2. 2
      In a medium-size saucepan, simmer cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it has reduced by a third. Remove from heat and stir in the pesto sauce and sun-dried tomatoes. Let stand a little to let the sauce thicken, if desired.
    3. 3
      When the penne is cooked, drain well and add the cream sauce. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat the pasta well with the sauce.
    4. 4
      Serve immediately, sprinkled with the cheese, if desired.
