One Pot Penne

It was early Sunday evening.  I was chilling out on the couch playing Candy Crush Saga.  Don’t judge me, please.  The hubby still out playing afternoon golf.  The house was relatively quite.  A few barks now and then from Kona as she had been quite busy chasing away the wild turkeys that were in our back yard.  Every now and then I would hear a cluck cluck from the turkeys that were annoyed by Kona.

I admit to being a bit lazy and as it started getting close to everyone coming home, I panicked.  What about dinner?  Oh Lord help me get this together I thought.

OMG I need a quick meal.  Here is what I came up with — One Pot Penne
