Penne Rosa is a creamy tomato pasta dish, with a delightful kick! This 15 minute meal is sure to please!
Noodles and Company makes a delicious pasta dish they call Penne Rosa. It was love at first bite and we knew it would be incredibly simple to make it at home. And bonus, at home you get to add more of the good stuff that restaurants always skimp out on to cut costs. That’s right, this recipe is even BETTER than Noodles and Co. And better yet, it takes just 15 minutes to whip this pasta up, making it a staple weeknight meal. It’s packed full of fresh ingredients like tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach, so you’re also getting your veggies in. This is a complete meal. Add some chicken if you’d like, but this is a meal we enjoy meatless. Welcome to one of our family favorites!

The savory mushrooms and the chunks of fresh tomato in each bite got a big thumbs up, too. . .and no pasta dish is complete without a little (or a lot) of Parmesan cheese on top!
Now, you can have that herb-y, tangy, garlicy flavor of your favorite red sauces AND the luscious creaminess of white sauces all in one.
STEP 2. While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes, until mushrooms are tender.
Served on its own, this pasta recipe happens to be vegetarian. It has so much flavor you won’t even miss the meat!
This has become one of my go to pasta dishes to make! It’s super simple to make and within minutes you have a creamy, comforting bowl of tastiness. Yum!
My favorite dish to order at the restaurant Noodles & Company is Penne Rosa. It’s an absolutely delicious pasta dish involving penne pasta, Roma tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach doused in a creamy tomato based sauce with freshly grated parmesan on top!
Every time I go to Noodles & Company, I think about ordering something else. But, I end up always getting Penne Rosa because I simply love it. I loved it so much that I created a copycat version of this recipe.
This dish has a delightful bit of heat to it, but it is not overpowering. If you are particularly spice sensitive, keep it at 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. If you enjoy spice, go ahead and use that full 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, or even add more!
