  • 7 -8 oz multi-grain whole wheat penne
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper
  • parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Cook penne according to directions, about 9 minutes for al dente.
  2. In a medium-size saucepan, simmer cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it has reduced by a third. Remove from heat and stir in the pesto sauce and sun-dried tomatoes. Let stand a little to let the sauce thicken, if desired.
  3. When the penne is cooked, drain well and add the cream sauce. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat the pasta well with the sauce.
  4. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the cheese, if desired.
