Recipe Ingredients for Penne Pasta


Sauce:
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
6 oz. tomato paste
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Pasta:
7 oz. penne pasta

Topping:
2/3 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Penne Pasta

  1. Prepare penne as directed on package. Rinse, drain, and set aside.

  2. In 2-quart casserole, combine all sauce ingredients. Cover. Microwave at High for 10 minutes, stirring once. Taste and add any other spices you'd like for taste. (I'd suggest a little garlic powder and basil.) Reduce power to 70%. Microwave for 8-10 minutes longer, or until flavors are blended, stirring once. Recover and set aside.

  3. Combine penne and sauce. Mix well. Top with mozzarella cheese. Reduce power to 70% again and microwave for 1-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 1 minute and serve.
