Simple Fried Penne with French Beans

A very good friend of mine recently went shopping and could not resist in getting a big pack of Penne Rigate when she saw it on offer. Lucky me, isn’t it?

Work has taken my time out recently especially over weekdays where I no longer could prepare hot home-cook meal for my family. I had to rely a lot on slow cooker and having to repeat simple dishes over and over again for them only because it was just so simple to prepare.

Tonight, I decided to whip up a simple pasta dish of Simple Fried Penne with French Beans with the French Beans that have been sitting in my refrigerator. Guess it is just another meal where I took out what is available in the fridge and whip up something simple yet a dish that my boys enjoyed.
