Tomato Cream Sauce

This quick and easy sauce goes very well with many types of pasta shapes. The dried red pepper adds just a bit of heat, but you can leave it out if you prefer a more delicate sauce. This sauce is also great with sausage added to it as shown in the image.

Buon Appetito!

  1. This is good. I added some sautéed onions, and caned, roasted, and diced tomatoes which made it better. I also added rosemary and thyme which were delicious.
