Blushing Penne Pasta

Blushing Penne Pasta created by AZPARZYCH

This pasta has a beautiful blush colour and the taste is fabulous. A little gem I found in the Taste of Home. Had to estimate the amount of pasta as it called for 1/2 package. I have also added shrimp or mussels to this on occasion.

    Chose to make this knowing I had tons of boxed pasta...apparently every kind except penne! Made with veggie farfalle and it was amazing! I decreased the amount of thyme and basil so my boys wouldn't freak out on the amount of "green stuff" and it still had wonderful flavor. I loved that it was made and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Will be making this again and again! Made for PAC Spring 2014.

    Made this as given & it was wonderfully flavorful, so I'll be keeping the recipe around! I like the idea of, now & then, adding some meat to it, & since I almost always have shredded chicken in the freezer . . . ! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I came across this recipe after I had browned some ground chicken, and proceeded with yours. I used some basil pesto paste for the basil (didn't add thyme). I served over wheat penne. I really liked the ground chicken with it, as it made it more filling. The whole family enjoyed (including two teens). Thanks for posting, Mums. Roxygirl
