- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄4 cup chopped and drained sun-dried tomato packed in oil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 12 ounces penne pasta, cooked
- 3⁄4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or 1⁄2 cup goat cheese
- chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- chopped fresh basil (optional)
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the onion and saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, saute for a minute or two being careful not to let the garlic burn (if it does, throw it out and start over).
- Add sun-dried tomatoes and next 5 ingredients. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Mixture will reduce.
- Prepare penne while the sauce cooks.
- Drain, place pasta in same pot that you cooked it in and add the sauce, cheese, parsley and basil, if using. Mix lightly and serve.
This is one of my favorite pasta recipes! I'm not a big fan of goat cheese so I usually sub mozzarella otherwise I make it as posted! I usually have all the ingredients on hand so it's a pantry recipe for me. Thanks for posting!
