Pasta and Sun-dried Tomatoes in a Pesto Sauce

Nothing goes better with pesto sauce than sun-dried tomatoes. Toss with whatever pasta you have on hand and add a little bit of cream cheese for extra richness and creaminess and you have a delicious, simple meal for lunch or dinner. As of right now, I use Knorr powdered pesto mix. One day when my basil plant produces enough leaves, I will prepare my own homemade pesto sauce.
Shell pasta with sun-dried tomatoes and cream cheese in a pesto sauce.
1 package Knorr pesto mix
¼ cup olive oil
¾ cup water
2 servings of the pasta of your choice
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon low fat cream cheese, cut in small pieces

Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Set aside.

Whisk the pesto mix, olive oil and water in a sauce pan. Bring to boil while constantly stirring.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Toss pasta with the sauce. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cream cheese.
