I’ve been crazy exhausted this week. The little hummingbird has started to climb into bed with me in the middle of the night and while I don’t mind it, my little girl is a violent sleeper so I keep waking up with a smack to my face or a foot kicking me in the chest. What does that have to do with this recipe?
Absofuckinglutely nothing but it is easy to put together for a yummy and quick meal, especially when you’re sleep deprived and feel like a zombie.
2 cups (8 oz.) dry penne pasta
8 sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), chopped (about 1/3 cup)
1 can (12 fl. oz.) evaporated milk
2 cups (8-oz. pkg.) shredded Italian-style four-cheese blend
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and drizzle with olive oil. Set aside.
Combine evaporated milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and add chopped sun dried tomatoes. Give it a stir.
Add pasta to cheese sauce; stir until combined. Voila! Pick up a fork and dig in.
