The first time I make a recipe, I try to stick to the ingredients they tell me to because changing ingredients changes the recipe. Well, last night’s dinner was of course like this. I had found a recipe for Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Artichoke Hearts and Goat Cheese. I wasn’t to sure about the tomatoes, because I had never worked with them before and hadn’t been a huge fan of them in other dishes I had eaten. I put them in anyway, and they ended up being much to sweet for the recipe. If I make this again, it’ll get fresh tomatoes instead.

Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Artichoke, and Goat Cheese
(from )

12 ounces penne pasta
1 TBS olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 can (14 oz) of artichoke hearts(rinsed, drained and chopped)
4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
salt and hot pepper to taste

  1.  Cook pasta until Al dente. Drain and keep warm. Reserve one cup of hot pasta water.
  2. In the meantime, heat olive oil in a large saute pan on medium high heat. Saute garlic, sun dried tomatoes and artichokes for about 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add goat cheese. Add cooked pasta and reserved water to the pan. Mix well and simmer for a few minutes until pasta is creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Makes 4 servings.
