Penne with Tomatoes, Olives and Two Cheeses

Penne with Tomatoes, Olives and Two Cheeses

Serving Size:Serves 8-12


  • 6 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 28 ounce cans Italian plum tomatoes, drained
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper
  • 2 cups canned low salt chicken broth
  • 1 pound penne or rigatoni
  • 2 1/2 cups packed grated Havarti cheese
  • 1/3 cup Brennan's Pitted Kalamata Olives, pitted
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil



This hearty and cheesy pasta dish is great when you have to serve a crowd. Pair it with a green salad and Italia Chianti. Try adding Italian Sausage for a twist.


Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in tomatoes, dried basil and crushed red pepper. 

Bring to boil, breaking up tomatoes with back of spoon. Add broth; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer and mixture thickens to chunky sauce and is reduced to 6 cups, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

(Can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm over low heat before continuing.)
