Sundried Tomato & Pesto Pasta

I often make pasta to send in DH's work lunch. Here's a quick recipe that turned out tasty.

Ingredients

1/2 box of Penne pasta
Hand full of sun dried tomatoes
1/4 c. olive oil
2 tbs. Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup of pesto


  1. Cook pasta according to package direction but remove from heat and drain 1-2 minutes early. (DH reheats his meal so this helps to avoid soggy noodles)
  2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, re-hydrate tomatoes in 1/4 c. olive oil.
  3. Add pesto to tomatoes and olive oil.
  4. While pasta is cooking, scoop out about 1/2-3/4 cup of the starchy pasta water.
  5. Pour water in with pesto, add Parmesan cheese and cook until thickening into a sauce. Just takes a minute.
  6. Toss with cooked pasta. 
This made 2 large servings.
