This is definitely my go to pasta at home as I loveee tomatoes. Especially when they’re perfectly ripe making it juicy and sweet!

spicy penne pomodoro

In this recipe, I used some portobello mushrooms but if you don’t have them, leave them out! This sauce is delicious plain too! Sometimes I make a bigger batch and store it in my fridge and on super lazy days, I pour it over my beans and rice! Using fresh tomatoes gives us a plus as they are high in antioxidants, vitamin C and many more.

I hope you guys love this recipe and let me know how it goes! What is your favorite kind of pasta?
