Creamy Broccoli and Sun Dried Tomato Penne Pasta

This Creamy Broccoli and Sun Dried Tomato Penne Pasta was SO good!  It's creamy, cheesy and just plain delicious!  A couple of the kids picked out the sun dried tomatoes, but loved it other than that.  I guess I can't complain too much for their first time trying sun dried tomatoes.  

1/2 (16 ounce) box penne pasta (8 ounces)
2 cups fresh broccoli, steamed
1 pint half and half
1 (8 ounce) package 6 cheese Italian blend (a 3 or 4 cheese blend would work as well if the 6 cheese blend is not available)
1 (3.5 ounce) package sun dried tomato halves, very roughly chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook pasta according to package directions.  While pasta is cooking, pour half and half, sun dried tomatoes, basil, and garlic into a large skillet.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer 5 minutes.  Slowly stir in cheese and cook until melted.  Add salt, cooked pasta, and broccoli.  Stir well to combine.
