A simple, easy-to-make sun dried tomato alfredo sauce tossed with pasta. It’s what to make on those nights when there’s just no time to cook.
Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo
Three cheers for 5 ingredients! Or maybe 5 cheers are in order because this creamy, comforting, and easy pasta recipe not only has just 5 ingredients, but it also takes less than 30 minutes to go from pan to plate.
We’re taking a simple jar of sun dried tomatoes and combining it with cream, butter, and parmesan cheese to make a sauce that clings to every strand of pasta. In this case, I used bucatini, a thicker-than-spaghetti pasta, that stands up to the sauce with a toothsome bite.
With the weather turning colder and the schedules getting busier this sun dried tomato alfredo is a happy, happy thing. It’s a recipe that will save dinner on those nights when take-out orders or drive-throughs pose a real threat to our cook-our-own-dinner best intentions.
Some Ingredients You’ll Need
That’s it! A 5-ingredient dinner idea to help start your week off right because we all need a creamy, cheesy pan of pasta every once in a while, right?
C’mon, you know you want a bite.

I recommend buying a 8.5 ounce jar of sun dried tomatoes packed in oil and pureeing the whole thing using a blender. You will have leftover pureed tomatoes, so save the unused puree. Use it on sandwiches, or add it to tomato sauce for another pasta dinner later in the week. It’s also delicious stirred into soups.
