Pesto and Tomato Penne

Now that I've shared my pesto recipe, it seems only fitting that I share a pasta dish that uses it.  This is a quick and easy dish we put together after a long day of classes.

You will need:

1 cup uncooked penne pasta
1 Roma tomato OR 4-5 cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of pesto sauce

Cook penne in salted water.  Drain water.

Chop Roma tomatoes into small, bite-sized pieces or cherry tomatoes in half.  In the same pot you cooked the pasta in, place pasta and tomatoes.  Cook over a medium-low heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add pesto and stir to coat pasta.  Let simmer for a few minutes.

Serve with a little grated Parmesan cheese and glass of wine.
