My husband absolutely loves pasta. So, I am always on the lookout for ALL different kinds of varieties of pasta :) Who knows, maybe someday I will attempt homemade pasta. Someday. That would be awesome. But, I think I need to build up to that moment in my life. It seems like one of those big steps where once you cross the line, there is no going back! I don't think I'm ready for that yet. So, in the meantime, here is another delicious pasta that is yummy, creamy, tomato - y, and will warm you up as winter starts melting into spring :) Enjoy!
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, finely diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
dash of sugar, to taste
1 cup heavy cream
grated parmesan or romano cheese, to taste
fresh basil, chopped
1 1/2 pounds fettucine
1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. Heat butter and oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, and saute for a minute or so.
3. Pour in tomato sauce and add salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Stir and cook over low heat for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. I like to blend sauce in the blender so it's nice and smooth.
4. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Add cheese to taste. Stir in pasta and basil. Serve immediately.
