One-pan penne pasta

Because it's 7 o'clock and maybe we’re all feeling a little busy with life these days – it’s a good timing to share a dinner idea that is easy, fast, hearty, and comforting.  Plus, you only need one pan and 30-minutes. All you need to do is chop, drop and cook all your ingredients together – even the pasta!

Add the canned tomatoes, stirring to combine. Pour in the heavy cream. Stir to combine. Add salt and pepper.
