Pepperoni Penne

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This snappy sauce starts with sauteed slices of spicy pepperoni with shallots and garlic added to the pan. Chopped tomatoes, cream and parsley jump in for a quick simmer before merging with hot pasta. Grate Parmesan over the top to finish.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Cook the penne according to the package directions.
  • In a large skillet saute the pepperoni until crispy (about 5 to 8 minutes). Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the grease. Add the shallot and garlic. Cook until translucent. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer for about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the cream and cook until reduced (about 8 minutes). Add the parsley and remove from the heat.
  • Add the drained pasta and toss, garnish with parmesan cheese.
