Who doesn’t love pasta? A delicious warm bowl of perfectly cooked pasta paired with sauce and a sprinkle of cheese is the comfort food of all comfort foods, and we’ve got the simplest, most satisfying and perfectly balanced pasta recipe just for you:
250 grams pasta ( Any kind will do)
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce (store bought or home made, both work. Scroll down below for a home made pasta sauce recipe* )
85 grams light cream cheese, softened
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions, usually 1-2 minutes.
Meanwhile, add pasta sauce to a separate smaller pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer, covered. Stir in cream cheese until smooth.
Once pasta is cooked, toss with sauce. Scoop servings onto individual plates. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan and basil, and serve with lemon wedges (lemon really amps up the tomato flavor.)
4 Tbsp salted butter
3 cloves garlic
800 grams canned whole peeled tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
Freshly cracked pepper
Serve up piping hot with a sprinkling of cheese and enjoy the simple things in life!
P.S If you’re a fan of mushrooms or sausages, feel free to add them in with the sauce for a meatier version.
