Sun Dried Tomato and Mushroom Pasta

A great addition to pasta is sun dried tomatoes. These sun-kissed beauties are a concentrated source of nutrients. The more you have them, the better! Recently, I wanted to put together a good vegetarian pasta (I have to come up with ways to eat my veggies). When I don’t have much time but want something heavy, I turn to pasta. As usual, I needed my creamy pasta fix so I made a white sauce pasta with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes. It was delishhh! Try it, try it, try itttt 🙂
