    About this recipe: This vegetarian pasta is a cinch to make and everyone will love it. Penne is tossed with sauteed garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, crushed chillies, black pepper and Parmesan. Simple and utterly delicious.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 450g penne pasta
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 2 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
    • 1 teaspoon crushed chillies
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain and return to pot.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and parsley for about 1 minute. Season with crushed chillies and black pepper. Stir into cooked pasta, along with remaining olive oil. Top with Parmesan.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    I'm not so sure how good this recipe would be if you followed the instructions to a tee, however I used the directions as a diving board and added my own two-cents. I used half of the penne suggested, but the full amount of olive oil. I also kept the amounts of garlic, parsely and black pepper the same. I quadrupled the amount of sun dried tomato, and added two freshly sliced mushrooms. After I sauteed the mix and added the pasta, I then added about 2 Tbsp fresh basil. The end result was phenomenal. Thank you for the stepping stone!  -  22 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This could be a 5 star dish with anyones own ideals, First I would not and did not use the whole pkg of pasta, I used more garlic than called for, I also used fresh greenbeans instead of sun dried tomatoes, and I added some shrimp I also went a little heavy on the pepper. My dish came out great and full of flavor. 5 stars !!!! I only rated it 4 stars for the orign recipe great start though thanks.  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Not bad! The whole box of penne pasta ended up being a bit too much. Also, had to use several sun dried tomatos - two just kind of get lost in that much pasta! I also ended up putting in a bit of garlic powder - the three cloves were barely noticible. Also will be using a bit more olive oil next time. Pretty good overall though! Thank you!  -  18 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
