Pasta With Tomato Cream Sauce

I've never met a carb I didn't like. It's a bit of a problem. I mean my tongue doesn't think so, but my behind does. Today I woke up craving a rich tomatoey pasta dish before I had even had breakfast. Do you think that's bad? That might be bad. 

Don't care. Moving on.

This recipe is from one of my all time favorite foodie websites, The Pioneer Woman. Go check her out, she rocks. And so do her culinary concoctions.

  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 cans (15 Ounce Each) Tomato Sauce Or Marinara Sauce
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Dash Of Sugar (more To Taste)
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • Grated Parmesan Or Romano Cheese, To Taste
  • Fresh Basil, Chopped
  • 1-½ pound Fettuccine

Preparation Instructions

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup of pasta water.
Heat butter and oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute for a minute or so. Pour in tomato sauce and add salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Stir and cook over low heat for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
