2 cups (8 oz.) dry penne pasta
8 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
2 cups (8-oz. pkg.) shredded Italian-style four-cheese blend
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Prepare pasta according to package directions, adding sun-dried tomatoes to boiling pasta water for last two minutes of cooking time; drain
Combine evaporated milk, cheese, basil, garlic powder and pepper in medium saucepan.Cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
Add pasta & sun-dried tomatoes to cheese sauce; stir until combined.
I added shredded chicken and some spices to it to give it a kick. I also made mine with fat free evaporated milk and Weight Watchers cheese to make it even lower in calories & fat. It was yummy! Everyone loved it and next time we will make it with shrimp and crab!

POUR batter over fruit in dish.

This was good. I was a little nervous about the orange jello but everyone loved it. To cut calories even more I made the batter with unsweented applesauce instead of oil.

My husband thought this tasted like potato soup. We all loved it and he went on and on about it. Now living in Germany we can't always find everything. For this recipe there was no Velveeta in the store. So I bought block pepper jack cheese which gave this recipe a kick and we love it and will make this many more times.I also used the whole package of chopped ham. My hubby loves his meat.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cooked
1 (16 ounce) package farfalle pasta
1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian-style salad dressing
1 tomato, chopped
1. Add 2/3 cup salad dressing to the cubed chicken and stir together.
2. Cook pasta per package directions. Drain and rinse. Add the pasta to the chicken and dressing and toss. Pour enough dressing on to coat everything (or to your taste) and add the chopped tomato. Toss to coat. Ready to serve!
OK so I love the fact that this is so simple. It was yummy and we all loved it. I didn't use the full amount of dressing that is called for. We started with the 2/3 cup and left it at the. We also only did 12oz of pasta so I knew I wouldn't need all the dressing. I added a couple mushrooms and some feta cheese. Next time I plan n adding more tomatoes then 1 and might do it with shrimp and crab.
