Ok, so I didn't see your update - and I used tomato sauce - but it still turned out great!  I halved the recipe, cheated a little and used frozen spinach and roasted red peppers from a jar.  I omitted the sundried tomatoes - I'm not a fan.
Highly recommended!  But I'm a sucker for a good red pepper sauce.  Thanks!


SO, I realized that somehow I screwed up this recipe, so here are the changes:
1. It is a can of diced tomatos not tomato sauce.
2. After cheese is melted, add can of tomatos,and spices.
3. Toss with penne and enjoy!
