Whole Wheat Penne w/ No-Cook Tomato Sauce & White Beans Ingredients 1lb. of whole wheat penne pasta4 Beef Steak tomatoes2-3 cloves of garlic1-15oz. can of white beans, rinsed and drained 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil½ cup chopped basilSalt and Pepper to tasteGarnish: Parmesan Cheese Directions Cook penne according to package. *Be sure not to over cook your pasta. I always cook whole wheat pastas al dente because once they get past al dente they tend to get mushy or may even begin to fall apart. Pulse garlic in a food processor until finely minced. Add tomatoes, olive oil, and salt and pepper and blend together. Once everything is well combined pour over cooked pasta. Stir in White beans and basil. Top with some Parmesan cheese and enjoy!!
