Bag of Trader Joe's Penne Pepperonata
Trader Joe's Penne Pepperonata

I tried some of the frozen Penne Pepperonata pasta from Trader Joe's. For preparation, I just followed the microwave instructions on the back, and I added shredded Parmesan cheese to it after microwaving.

This pasta looks very similar to the Trader Joe's Penne Arrabbiata pasta, however, it is a lot sweeter. I like bell peppers, but the amount of red and yellow peppers seemed a little too heavy and made it a little too sweet for me. Even the Parmesan cheese I added didn't counteract the sweetness very much.

The bag also says the sauce is a red pepper cream sauce, but the sauce was thin and not very creamy. Although it was a little too sweet, that didn't stop me from eating it all up... I was super hungry when I tried this and was able to eat the whole bag in one sitting!

Overall, I like Trader Joe's Penne Arrabbiata better, but this pasta was still good.
