Who doesn’t love pasta? How about making Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes? Pasta is considered as one of the easiest and simplest dishes, but how come it has so many varieties? Mostly, we have it with some tomato sauce or with cheese, but I love to try new versions if I have time. I found a little sun-dried tomatoes left in a bag, which was a gift from mom the other day. And I dreamt them in pasta just as I saw them. Does it happen to you too? Do you see the dish you will make in your mind when you look at a particular ingredient? This pasta with sun dried tomatoes came out in this way.
To make this Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes healthier, I used tagliatella girata with bran in this recipe. You can replace it with your favorite pasta. I didn’t add salt to the sauce as our sun-dried tomatoes are salty enough.
