Penne pasta recipe with step by step photos – pastas and pizza …. Somethings which neither me nor hubby likes…
Question: so why this recipe of penne pasta?
Answer: sometimes, there is nothing wrong in making a recipe which one does not like.
Result: husband did not eat the Penne at all and just had the tomato mushroom sauce… And that leaves me to eat the penne… Which I obviously cannot… So there was the penne in the fridge which I had to have the next day. So I combined it with pesto and it was great.
But for all pasta lovers this recipe is a treat. I remembered all my friends who love pasta when I made this Italian recipe.


For the tomato mushroom sauce

  • 6-7 Ripe red medium size tomatoes
  • 2 Medium size onions, Sliced or chopped
  • 300 grams Mushrooms
  • 6-7 Flakes of garlic, Crushed (lahsun)
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Italian herb mix
  • 1 teaspoon Dried oregano
  • 4 Green olives
  • 4 Black olives
  • 2 or 3 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt As required

For the pasta

  • 200 to 250 grams Penne

To make the tomato mushroom sauce

  • Heat the olive oil in a pan.

  • Add the chopped tomatoes now and saute them till they become soft.
