Vegetable Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
Sun-dried tomato spread is a blend of sun-dried tomatoes, tomato paste and olive oil. Use it as a spread on toast or as a substitute for tomato paste. You can find it with the packaged sun-dried tomatoes in the produce section of your local grocery store. This colorful salad easily enhances the holiday spread. The bow tie pasta and sauteed veggies are covered in a creamy sun-dried tomato sauce. It’s delicious.

MY REVIEW

This is by far the best diet recipe I have made from Taste of Home. I did tweak it by adding grilled chicken and artichoke hearts. Next time I will make the change of adding less peas. They were a little overwhelming. While my 17 mos old loved all the peas, I think next time I will only put 1 cup in instead of the whole 10 oz.

I just made this for the first time tonight. It was delicious! I did make a few changes. I only used 1 red pepper, the fresh mushrooms, and onion. I diced the pepper instead of julienned due to a picky 16 year old. I didn't have peas in the house, but I had left over grilled chicken breast. I hand shredded it and added it when I put in the pasta. The secret to me is letting the sun-dried tomato sauce slightly reduce with the sauteed veggies before you add the pasta. Wonderful and easy!
