I hate eating dinner without my husband, especially this Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta. Is anyone else the same? It just stinks to prepare a big and wonderful meal and not have him there to share it with me. I adore my children, but it just stinks to work long and hard to prepare dinner and then only you and a 4yr old enjoy it. If Cade worked nights I swear I would probably only make  baby German pancakes or some other breakfast food.

Well, the other night. The hubby had a late day for work which meant it was just me and the kids for dinner. I needed to use up some neufchatel cheese (only to remember later that I can’t have dairy right now, woops!) so I came up with this little recipe. It took no thought since it’s a crock pot recipe which is good because I didn’t want to be stuck in the kitchen. I think we will keep it around for those days where dinner is the last thing I need to worry about.

How Do You Know When Pasta Is Done?

Pasta should be cooked to al dente, or firm to the taste.

The best way to tell if pasta is done, is to taste it.

Are Sundried Tomatoes Healthy?

Sun-dried tomatoes are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and good-for-you minerals.

Sun dried tomatoes can help lower your risk of cancer and age-related diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.

Is Neufchatel Cheese the Same As Cream Cheese?

American Cream Cheese and American Neufchâtel can be used interchangeably!

Neufchâtel is made using milk exclusively, and, cream cheese is made with milk and cream, giving it a higher fat content.
