Creamy Pepper Penne Recipe

A flavorful sour cream sauce nicely coats every bite of penne pasta in this pleasing side dish. To turn it into an entree, stir in some cubed cooked chicken or cooked shrimp.—Deborah Wolf, Palmyra, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2013

I didn't have penne pasta or red pepper so I used spaghetti and green pepper. Found the recipe was delicious but needed more vegetables for my liking. Next time I make this I will add more vegetables, more hot sauce, and more salt. Great recipe if you have leftovers in the fridge (chicken, peas, broccoli, etc.) that needs to be used up. Thumbs up from me!!
