3 tbsp Pesto Sauce 45 mL
3 tbsp My Mother's Tomato Sauce 45 mL
160 g penne rigate 2 cups
3 tbsp pasta cooking water 45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil 10 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the Tomato Sauce and the Pesto Sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Add the specified amount of pasta cooking water, which will warm up the sauce and will dilute it a bit.
  3. Put the drained pasta back into the pasta cooking pot, add the sauce and extra virgin oil, then mix well. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, then serve in the warmed dishes.
