Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

When I began planning this year’s #HunkiedorieHarvestParty I knew I wanted to step up my game and change the menu as much as I could from the previous year. I usually try to have the following in my menu:

Appetizers
Soup
Salad
Chicken/Poultry
Beef
Vegetarian/Pasta
1-2 Sides
Dessert

Finished Faux Chalkboard

A few weeks ago I posted my beef option, the Herb Crusted Prime Rib. My sister is the vegetarian and a few of my friends aren’t huge carnivores so I wanted a great vegetarian option that could stand alone as an entree option for those not eating meat that evening. Pasta was a great way to go, it’s filling and if you keep it simple you can really be sure to hit a homerun with all of your herbivores!

Stay tuned on Hunkiedorie.net to see all the recipes from this years #HunkiedorieHarvestParty.
