If you are a pasta-loving person, this recipe is going to give you a delicious new way to devour your favorite tomato pasta. This creamy tomato pasta recipe that I am sharing with you today is just a five-ingredient dish that you will love to have over and over again.
What’s the twist?
Well, for this Creamy Tomato Pasta recipe, I have added cream cheese to the classic tomato and spaghetti dish. Some of you may be adding cream cheese already to their spaghetti but let me tell you that if you haven’t been doing it so far, you aren’t doing it right. Using cream cheese adds a delicious tangy note to the tomato sauce and enriches the creaminess of the dish. Trust me, this might just be a small addition for you, but it really elevates the entire recipe.
There’s a lot more you can modify in your version of Creamy Tomato Pasta. For instance, the last time I made this dish for my family, I used some parmesan cheese and minced garlic. In fact, I love garlic so my pasta is never without it. Mushroom lovers can brown some onion and mushrooms together and add to the pasta. You could even try some baby spinach leaves and grated carrots.
If you loving cooking, you know what I am trying to imply here. Use your imagination and make your perfect recipe combination and write it down for the next time.
About serving the dish, I like my Creamy Tomato Pasta with some toasted garlic bread and a fruit salad. A lemon meringue tastes perfect for the dessert. You could also try some cookies and ice cream which is another great dessert to compliment this tangy, saucy pasta.
How to make Creamy Tomato Pasta
- Bring a pot of salted water to boil
- Take a skillet and melt some butter and olive oil in it.
- Add some chopped onions and garlic, stir until golden brown. Brown for 5-6 minutes.
- Now add your favorite pasta sauce to the mixture of onion and garlic.
- Stir frequently, bring the mixture to simmer. Keep stirring so the mixture doesn’t get burned.
- Add your pasta to the boiling water. Cook until the inside of pasta is white. You can also bite the pasta to check if it’s cooked.
- Just a few minutes before the spaghetti is taken off the flame, add some cream cheese to the pasta sauce. You will need to use a whisk to ensure that the cheese melts properly. Don’t expect the cream cheese to fully dissolve in the sauce because it won’t.
- Add the pasta to the skillet, toss for a few minutes and then serve.
