    Easy, pretty, and tasty. Delicious as-is for a vegetarian main dish, but would also be good with shredded chicken or cooked, crumbled Italian sausage. The family liked it! (Husband and toddler included)

    This recipe is similar to stuffed pasta shells, but with penne! I enjoyed it and would make again. Great healthy pasta dish!
