Caprese Penne

Caprese Penne


This easy vegetarian caprese penne pasta features sweet cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil. Simple and delicious! Adapted from How Sweet It Is.


  • 1/2 box whole wheat penne
  • 1 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • fresh mozzarella, sliced (sliced provolone works in a pinch)
  • 1 pint of cherry tomatoes (some halved, some left whole)
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Boil water and cook pasta according to directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat tomato sauce over low heat in a large saucepan. Once warm, stir in sour cream and grated parmesan.
  3. Once pasta is done cooking, drain and dump into the sauce, mixing to coat and turning off heat. Add the tomatoes and a few chopped basil leaves. Once combined, spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and pour the entire pasta mixture into the dish. Top with the sliced cheese (as much as you want).
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Top with additional fresh basil!
