Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

As you might have already guessed, I have a thing for creamy pasta. Lately I like to combine it with sun-dried tomatoes, which make it the most comforting dish and perfect for days when you want to spoil yourself. I think today is one of those days. Tomorrow too.

    Can the chicken broth be substituted with something else like vegetable broth?

      Mushrooms and red bell pepper work well here, saute them until they are soft, then add them to the sauce. Cherry tomatoes are also great.
