Dish: Creamy Tomato Pasta Sauce

Like I said in my yesterday’s post, my kids love pasta and I’m always in the look out for interesting sauce recipes. Today’s creamy tomato pasta sauce comes from Pioneer woman’s site. I love Ree Drummond and her recipes are always easy to follow and have been a big hit in my house.

This pasta sauce could not be simpler because it uses canned tomato sauce as the base. I always have all kinds of canned tomatoes (chopped, puree, paste and so on) in my pantry, so this would be something I can see myself making quite often. Creaminess comes from the addition of heavy cream and since this dish is for kids, I was liberal in adding it to the sauce 🙂 If you are concerned about the calorie intake then reduce the quantity of heavy cream or use half-n-half or even milk for a lighter version.
