Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta

I love the fun shapes of the Sfoglini reginetti pasta that I used in this recipe! These noodles have a wonderful texture that this sauce works perfect on. This brand has so many different shapes of pasta and is made in the US. It is organic and works really well in this sun-dried tomato pasta recipe. I love using whole grain pasta in most of my recipes for the added fiber content!
