One Skillet Cheesy Penne

Oh my goodness me! Did the kids love this one! You made me Mom of the year! Or night , at least. I didn’t have a red pepper or the fire roasted tomato, I just used regular tomato pieces in sauce but it was still just fantastic. I had a bit of cream and cheese that needed using up immediately also, so it was perfect! You seem to have an inmate sense on what families like to eat. Thank you so much again! Love these family recipes! With items on hand!

One Skillet Cheesy Penne - the best homemade ragu sauce simmered right with the pasta then loaded with cheese! My family begs me to make this weekly!
