Expert Tips

  • For this recipe, we used sun-dried tomatoes from a jar packed with oil and herbs. You'll often find these tomatoes near the shelf-stable olives and pickles at the grocery store.
  • Adjust the amount of crushed red pepper flakes to your liking—add an extra pinch or two if you like a little heat.
  • Covering the dish with foil during the first part of baking helps cook the pasta while preventing it from drying out.
  • Top each serving with grated Parmesan for more cheese flavor.
  • Serve with Pillsbury™ French bread and a green salad to round out your meal.
