Creamy Penne with Squash

Here’s  a quick run-down of this recipe I made last night. And yes, I failed at taking pictures. I was in a hurry, but I’m sorry!

I’ll try to do better next time. Without further ado, here’s the recipe!

Creamy Penne with Squash:

Cast of Ingredients:
2 squash or zucchini
8 oz of penne pasta (or other noodles)
5 oz feta cheese
1/2 cup of half-and-half
1 diced tomato

Boil water and begin cooking penne noodles.
While the noodles are cooking, grate the 2 squash or zucchini. I used squash. Here is my one successful picture for this recipe! If you’ve never grated squash before, it’s pretty easy. Cut off the ends of the squash. Push the cut end onto the grater, and rub back and forth over a bowl. See? Easy, just like I promised.


When the penne is almost done cooking, add the grated squash/zucchini into the pot for about 3 minutes.
Drain the pasta and squash/zucchini.
Add diced tomato and half-and-half to the pot, and heat through.
Before serving, dump in the feta cheese, and mix it in well.

This was SO good! Hubby had no idea there was even squash in it, so it was a good way to sneak in a vegetable. Creamy, cheesy, and delicious!
