Creamy Garlic Penne Pasta Recipe

It always seems like a big issue for me to decide what to prepare for a side dish, so I’m always looking for a simple recipe that won’t take much time. This Creamy Garlic Penne Pasta Recipe caught my eye. The whole family likes pasta dishes, and I needed a recipe that would go good with baked fish. I wanted it to be a hot dish as opposed to a cold pasta salad; just thinking warm, would go better with the baked Tilapia Fish that it was being served with. The whole dinner was a success-the baked fish was good and the Creamy Garlic Penne Pasta was excellent. The next time you need a warm side dish give this one a try. Enjoy
