The Pioneer Woman's Shrimp Penne a la Betsy "I used the recipe from her cookbook (which called for a full lb. of penne and a 14.5 oz can of tomato sauce) and it was delicious! Took me about 30 min from beginning to end AND my family told me to add this to the rotation. A five star recipe for sure! :)"

Pampered Chef - Grilled Chicken Penne al Fresco & Three Cheese Garden Pizza
This grilled Chicken Penne Pasta has been a favorite for the last few years. It is great in the summer because it is a microwave dish, but it tastes like something you would eat at a restaurant. If you sub grape tomatoes with canned diced tomatoes, you could keep the ingredients on hand at all times for a fast meal.
