By Semi Homemade, I mean using a prepackaged marinara sauce. Which makes this recipe super easy to do. It goes by very quickly. I’d say less than 20 minutes.
So a definite possibility for anyone, and it’s Meatless. Meatless Wednesday. I think I am going to make Wednesdays Meatless. I told my husband we needed to eat less meat and more variety of vegetables. I think we will have to work on the vegetable part.
I added too much pepper flakes, Remember the more you add, the bigger the bite (Spice) you’ll have. My daughter didn’t like it.
Onto the next steps.
Add the marinara, stir, allow to cook for 5 minutes. Add Cream (basil, parmesan), Stir, simmer on low for 5 minutes. You don’t want the sauce to taste like half and half. Add Penne to sauce and toss. Serve sprinkle with Parmesan if you have it.
It’s delicious. You might want some bread to scoop up the remaining sauce on your plate.
