Healthy Penne Pasta
Sun-dried tomatoes offer a nice flavor to this simple baked pasta dish. You can make the sauce up to 2 days ahead and refrigerate it. Then, just mix in the cooked pasta and pop it in the oven for a quick meal.
• 12 ounces penne
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 large onion, chopped
• 1/4 cup chopped dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 2 cans (15 ounces each) stewed tomatoes
• 1/4 cup vermouth or white wine
• 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
• 10 large kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
• 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated parmesan cheese
• 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 2 1/2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Prepare the penne according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the stewed tomatoes (with juice), wine, and basil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
Stir in the cooked penne, olives, Parmesan, and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. Place in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
