Aaaaa…pasta is one of my favourite ingredients when it comes to dinner paired with wine! You see, I am a big fan of Italian cuisine and most of the times, you tend to think that pasta is accompanied with heavy cream, bacon and other stuff that are yummy, but they are also a big bully to your stomach.

Well, I’ve got news for you! They don’t have to be! If pasta is cooked in the right way and with the right ingredients, it can be quite delicious and light as well. Therefore, proving my point and supporting my opinion, I am offering you the Penne Pasta In Sun-Dried Tomatoes And Olives recipe. (Penne is also my favourite kind of pasta if you haven’t figured that out until now.)

And of course, I also have the right wine to pair that dish. In fact, I have two!

Enjoy the recipe with a glass of Pinot Grigio or a glass of Riesling, if it satisfies your palate better.

Whichever you choose, you’re gonna have a great experience!

So, why don’t you try that recipe with the above wine pairing and see how that goes?!
