ALERT ALERT ALERT! Only a small amount of time and a few ingredients stand between you and a skillet full of creamy, garlicky, flavorful, romantic, and dangerously good pasta. Tender sun-dried tomatoes, maybe some spinach, creamy sauce, bouncy noodles, and a heavy dusting of Parmesan. This is an urgent matter. I think you understand.
A few important things for your review before you take a swim in this creamy, luscious pan of pasta:
First of all, can you ever go wrong with garlic, white wine, and cream in a sauce? Hint: no. It’s just a cheat code for greatness. It makes short ingredient lists everywhere very, very happy.
Secondly, spirali is the most fun pasta shape of all time and I won’t debate with you about this. It’s a skinny little tube, like bucatini, but it’s wound into a tight spiral, so you get a spiraly shape that is very subtly voluminous and airy at the same time. Spring gift to yourself: an order of specialty pasta to make your weeknight cooking into a fun adventure. File under things you say after age 30.
Bringing You a Very Simple Ingredient List
Okay, your star players in this recipe are:
- pasta (spirali, spirali, spirali! it’s too much fun)
- white wine
- sun-dried tomatoes
And… the rest is kind of up to you. You can throw in a handful of spinach and some sliced chicken sausage if you want. Make it a one-pot meal.
Or you can just dive in headfirst.
You’ll Need Delicious, Quality Pasta Here
Truthfully, one of my favorite SOS hacks is keeping versatile, good-quality foods on hand at all times.
DeLallo is the source of many of my favorite items in this category.
Their website is FULL and I mean really FULL of fun made-in-Italy products that can ship right to your door, and we have a large selection of all of these things at our office kitchen since we’ve been working with DeLallo for like, 8 years? Longest standing brand partner on POY because we love them and so do you. ♡
In my home kitchen, however, space is tight, so I have to reduce my stash to just a few of our most beloved favorites:
- whole wheat orzo
- tomato sauce
- sun-dried tomatoes
- and now, spirali
Whatever kind of noodle you use, it’s just a fact: pasta in a creamy white wine garlic sauce, speckled with tender bites of sun dried tomatoes and a handful of fresh herbs makes any SOS weeknight just a little less SOS-y and a lot more wonderful.

Creamy Garlic Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta: FAQs
Good news is this recipe is super customizable! Go ahead and add anything else you want in there – sliced chicken sausages, spinach leaves, peas, etc!
That should work – you’ll just need to add a bit more olive oil to the pan and the dish to bring all the flavors together well.
One of our team members, Jasmine, knows the ins and outs of wine pairings. She recommends a white wine from Italy, like a Pinot Grigio, Soave, Gavi, or Verdicchio here. 🤓
Source notes: The idea for this recipe came from my friend Angela! She texted me about it one night after she made it, with a photo, and it was my lunch the very next day because, like I said at the beginning, this is an urgent matter.Print

- 8 ounces DeLallo spirali pasta (okay, you don’t have to use spirali, but it is SO FUN)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup DeLallo sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, sliced or chopped

- Sauté the good stuff: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Use a little bit of the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes to sauté the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes until soft and fragrant, 2-3 minutes.
- Make the sauce: Add the wine; let it sizzle out and reduce so the flavor gets real good. Add the cream; bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper.
