PASTA WITH TOMATO CREAM SAUCE

PASTA WITH TOMATO CREAM SAUCE
This amazing pasta is going to be your new best friend! It comes together in a flash and oh those tomatoes, cream and pasta…..topped with a dusting of cheese. It’s perfect in its simple little way.
Sometimes, a cuppa cream has gotta hit the pan. I mean how much chicken and veggies can one girl eat?
If I am going to splurge on a bowl of pasta, you can bet it’s going to have tomatoes and cream in it. The simple combo just leaves me all happy and stuff. (I did have broccoli on the side BTW, it’s all about balance :).
Saute some onions and garlic in a little butter and olive oil. Toss in the tomato sauce, let it cook down a bit…then hit it with the cream. Not half and half my friends, cream. Make up those 40 calories somewhere else. CREAM for this one my friends.
Besides being incredibly easy to make, this makes a ton of pasta. I’m gonna be knocking on neighbors doors giving this stuff away. My neighbors really, really like me.
I used linguine because I figured it was ‘thinner’ and lower in calories than fettuccine. The rational of a chub-o is an amazing thing. You don’t wanna be in this head….
TIPS TO MAKE PASTA IN TOMATO CREAM SAUCE:
You can use tomato sauce, marinara or crushed tomatoes in this recipe. ( I really like the simple flavor of the tomato sauce).
Use any kind of pasta you like, this is all about the sauce.
Add chicken or sausage if you need a protein.
Taste test, adding salt and pepper as you go. This should go without saying, but I forget all the time and it can make or break a dish. Also salt your pasta water.
