Pasta with tomato cream sauce
Very very simple idea and recipe for one of these nights when the weather is not so good and you are not very inspired...
You will need:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Butter
1 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
4 cloves Garlic, Minced
2 cans Tomato Sauce Or Marinara Sauce
Salt And Pepper, to taste
Dash Of Sugar (more To Taste)
1 cup double Cream
Grated Parmesan Or Romano Cheese, To Taste
Fresh Basil, Chopped
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.
Remove from heat and stir in cream. Add cheese to taste, then check seasonings. Stir in pasta and chopped basil and serve immediately. (Thin with pasta water before adding basil if needed.)
