Quick and Creamy Tomato Pasta Sauce

The use of canned tomatoes and whipping cream was intriguing in this recipe.  I made the preparation even easier by using dried minced onions and minced garlic in a jar.  This is a mild, creamy sauce that is a nice change from the more robust kinds.  My daughters and I enjoyed this over fresh tortellini.

  1. That does sound like a nice change of pace. Thanks, Lillian! Timely, as I’m going grocery shopping this evening. Or tomorrow morning. Sometime soon.

  2. I was getting ready to make pasta sauce the day this arrived in my mailbox so I quickly made it according to your recipe and it was a favorite of everyone, especially my picky husband. He wants me to make it this way all the time now! 🙂
