If you crave lots of flavor without having to put in a lot of time (or do a lot of dishes!), then you've got to make our creamy, One-Pot Penne. It's a change-of-pace dinner that the whole family will go to town on, and it's ready in no time. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound penne pasta
  • 2 (10-3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of celery soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 (3-ounce) package sliced pepperoni, each slice cut in half
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

What to Do

  1. In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside in a colander.
  2. In the same pot, combine remaining ingredients and heat over medium-low heat 8 to 10 minutes, or until bubbling.
  3. Return pasta to pot and toss to coat. Heat 2 to 3 more minutes, or until heated through. Serve immediately.

Why every time the recipe says Creamy Cavatelli, this recipe comes up? I WOULD like to see the Creamy Cavatelli recipe sometime, please. It looks so good.

This is delicious!! I cut the recipe in half and still had enough left over to freeze for later. I wasn't sure because I am not a big celery fan, but I was pleasantly surprised!!

Does it say how many it serves?

It says SERVES 4!

I think this recipe sounds great! I have some turkey pepperoni in the cupboard I am going to try it with and instead of onion and garlic powder, I will sautee in butter & use chopped garlic & onions & maybe fresh chopped basic too! I will add some freshly grated cheese as well

Okie-dokie, then . . . I WILL do this, I WILL do that, and I give it 5 stars for the "recipe sounds great!" Hmm-m-m-m . . .

I used the dried penne! And it was wonderful!! Have made it twice now! Second time I added more pepperoni!

This is so quick and easy and pleases the pickiest eaters! Instead of cavetelli pasta you can also use penne pasta. I don't always buy the frozen kind, I used the dry box kind as well and just cook it according to the package directions say for 4 servings. Leftovers are great for lunch too!

I'm just today getting into this recipe, called One Pot Penne, it calls for penne, and I would start with penne. I don't see anywhere it calls for cavetelli, lissalove 1123. Please try to confuse me.

This is an easy and excellent recipe! The pepperoni gives it just enough spice not to be boring. The Tamale Pie from a few weeks ago in wonderful and both of them are so easy to prepare. Thank you Mr. Food! You are now my new hero!!
