Pepper Penne by Ashley

Oh My!!  We had this tonight for dinner.  All of the boys ate it, including Gray who is 1 and Sam who usually only eats the bread for dinner.  I loved it and it was so easy!  Enjoy!!!
1 package of penne pasta (I used whole grain)
1/2 t. rosemary
2 packages of sliced pepperoni, halved ( I used 1 package and it seemed to be plenty)
1/4 c. pepperocini (omit if too spicy for kids, but it wasn't really spicy with it.  I will probably use more than 1/4 next time)
1 jar roasted red bell pepper, drained and chopped
3 1/2 c. boiling water
1/2 c. whipping cream (I used milk)
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
In a large pot, layer pasta, rosemary, pepperoni, pepperocini, and roasted red pepper.
Add water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer until pasta is tender.

A Littel Tidbit by Ashley

Ok, so this isn't a recipe, but something tells me you will all want to know.  I have been meaning to tell my Mom, Lindsey, and Kimberly but keep forgetting.
If someone told me I could only have two things in my make-up bag, it would probably be eyeliner and mascara.  I found a new mascara that I love.  This is coming from someone who's favorite was $27 dollar a tube Lancome mascara.  It is lashblast from Cover Girl.  O magazine rated it #1 best mascara of this year! I love it!! Just thought I would share!
