Easy Penne Pasta Recipe

I've mentioned many times that I'm not much of a cook. My husband is THE cook in our family...sometimes we call him Masterchef. :) However, the few things I can put together are one dish meals...those are my specialty, if you will. 

Today I'm sharing with you a super yummy, super easy dish!

Let me know if you try it!

Penne with Roasted Corn and Poblano, Beans, and Avocado

  • red bell peppers
  • ears shucked corn

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • garlic clove, minced
  • 4 cups hot cooked penne (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
