Penne Caprese is one of those main dishes that every parent should know. It is fast and simple to cook with few ingredients. Yet the flavours of the Mozzarella, fresh ripe tomatoes and penne will always result is a superb dish.  I serve this with a plain salad for a balance meal that even the children enjoy. Also, it is also ready within 15 minutes and I often add a quick grate of parmesan for an additional flavour. Like so many Italian recipes, they create amazing flavours quickly and with fewer ingredients than you would imagine. Add a few slices of chili for that extra kick.
