Easy Eats are simple, fast and yummy recipes for your busy lifestyle! 


No. You did not read wrong. I did not mispell diavalo! I spelled DIABLO on purpose. As in Penne with Marinara Del DIABLO

This Penne with Marinara Del Diablo is an easy, fast, tasty and healthy dish that you can cook up in NO TIME! This one puts the S-I-M-P-L-E in Cinfully Simple. #WineNot? It’s vegetarian too!


Given that this is the #HalloWINE season and we just submitted OUR ENTRY to the Casillero Del Diablo Wine’s Legendary Halloween Costume Contest, it seems only fitting to give you a #Cinfulicious recipe that includes WINE! The Devil’s wine to be exact.

Hmmm… Should I be concerned that a LOT of my cooking includes wine or beer and the occasional tequila? Nah. I do it all for you! Besides, it’s HalloWINE! 

Why do YOU celebrate HalloWINE?

a) Because you don’t have kids.

b) Because you have kids who you shove out the door once a year to go trick or treating, even when they’re 23 and still living at home.

c) You’re hiding from the trick or treaters because you forgot to buy the Halloween candy or you just don’t like kids. 

c) Because you CAN! 

We don’t eat a ton of pasta at my house, so when we do, I like it to taste GOOD! That said, I am not always the biggest fan of whole wheat pastas and some of those other “healthy” alternatives. Generally speaking, I’m open to trying new things but mostly I’m an everything in moderation girl who wants my food to taste like it should, which can often mean white rice, white pasta. Blanco baby! NO JUDGING!

BUT, there IS one healthier pasta brand that I DO like, Barilla Plus. It’s a multigrain alternative to white pasta that actually tastes pretty tasty! Try it!


Ingredients not shown: olive oil, crushed red pepper

As much as I’d love to keep on chatting you up, this IS an Easy Eats recipe and I have HalloWine to drink! So here’s the recipe card. Enjoy this devilishly good Penne with Marinara Del Diablo! It pairs nicely with my Caprese Salad with a Twist and don’t forget to finish the wine!

  7. Drain pasta and place in large serving bowl.
