Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Pasta

*One Pot Recipe*

  1. ½ cup sun dried tomatoes
  2. 2 Tbsp butter
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 8 oz. fettuccine or penne pasta
  5. 1/2 tsp dried basil
  6. Freshly cracked pepper
  7. 2 cups chicken broth
  8. 2 oz. cream cheese
  9. 1 cup whole milk
  10. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan


  1. Chop the sun dried tomatoes into small bite-sized pieces.
  2. Add the butter and garlic to a deep skillet or Dutch oven.
  3. Sauté the garlic over medium heat for about one minute, or until it is very fragrant. Be careful not to let the garlic burn.
  4. Add the fettuccine, sun dried tomatoes, dried basil, some freshly cracked pepper, and the chicken broth to the skillet.
  5. If needed, break the fettuccine in half to make sure it is all the way in the broth.
  6. Place a lid on the pot and bring to a boil.
  7. Once it boils, stir and reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  8. Let the pasta simmer in the broth for 7-10 minutes, or until most of the broth is absorbed and the pasta is tender, stirring every couple of minutes and always replacing the lid.
  9. Keeping the heat on low, cut the cream cheese into chunks and stir it into the pasta.
  10. Once the cream cheese has melted, add the milk and stir until a smooth sauce forms.
  11. Finally, add the grated Parmesan over top and stir until it has melted into the sauce.
  12. Serve with extra freshly cracked pepper, if desired.
