#SundaySupper Lumachine with Fresh Parmesan and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

If you haven’t read it on my blog posts or on my facebook but a million times, I look forward to spending my Sunday with the #SundaySupper group. I truly do. It’s an amazing group of bloggers who support, connect, share and chat with each other. We are like cyber-family. A new version of The Jetsons if you will.

I am honored to have been asked by Isabel Foodie, Founder of #SundaySupper, to host this weeks #SundaySupper. She can be found at www.familyfoodie.com I have to say, when your family asks you to do something you do it!

This week our theme is Dishes in 5 Ingredients or less. As a busy mother of two children (ages 3 and 2), finding dinner in a snap can be difficult. There are many nights I do not have the time to prepare a complex meal or I only have few ingredients on hand. Since I am a stay-at-home mom, our family works under one income which also means a weekly meal budget. This theme is intended to give ideas and recipes to anyone looking for a simple yet delicious meal. Not only can you prepare a dinner in few ingredients you can also prepare breakfast and even desserts! Our group is amazing as I have said yet again. I was blown away by the desserts that were made. Be sure to also check out Martin’s post on “Five Most Food Friendly Wines.” Yes, I’ll have a drink to that!

Please put on your spacesuit, as I have mine on every Sunday. (Personally, I like to be Judy Jetson but we’ll keep that under wraps ;)) I hope you’re blown away with this weeks recipe, Lumachine with Fresh Parmesan and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce.


  • 1 pound lumachine or any kind of small noodles works well such as elbow
  • 8 oz. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion: chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups of light cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Step 1: Cook pasta according to instructions

Step 2: Cook the onion and sun-dried tomatoes in a frying pan over low heat for 5-7 minutes. (The oil in the sun-dried tomatoes gives you a “fat” to work with)

Step 3: Add freshly grated Parmesan

Step 4: Drain the pasta and add it to the tomato mixture. Stir to combine.

By having few ingredients, you can really enjoy the simplicity and flavors that shine through. Dishes can be made with very little and still have a big flavor. Please enjoy more Dishes in 5 Ingredients or Less by our AMAZING (again…I know) #SundaySupper group. Thank you for allowing me to be your host!

We’ll be meeting up at 7:00 pm(Eastern) for our weekly #SundaySupper  live chat where we’ll talk about our favorite 5 Ingredient Recipes! All you have to do is follow the #SundaySupper hashtag, or you can follow us through TweetChat!  We’d also love to feature your easy go to recipes on our #SundaySupper Pinterest board and share them with all of our followers!

    Ever since we took on the challenge of keeping our food budget tighter having simple recipes on hand that used up only a few ingredients most of which I already had on hand has been a necessity. I am so excited for this weeks Sunday Supper challenge so I can get more 5 ingredient recipe ideas. Thanks for hosting such a great theme.

  2. Susan says:

    Great recipe, I’m a fan of the simple tomato and onions on pasta dinner! It’s been a staple the last few weeks while fresh tomatoes are still in season. I’ve yet to give it a try with sundried though! Also, thanks for hosting this week!

    I had no clue what lumachine was, and I was guessing it was pasta when I read the title. I do a pasta similar to this but with just regular tomatoes. Like you said, using few ingredients lets the flavors shine through and not muddled under sauce. Thanks for hosting!

  6. Renee says:

    I love cooking with different pasta shapes. Now I will be looking for lumachine.
    Thanks a bunch for hosting #SundaySupper this week. You did a great job and it was a fantastic theme.
