Linguine with Tomato Cream Sauce is an easy 30 minute meal perfect for any weeknight! It’s so simple and so satisfying!
Hi friends! Welcome to January’s post on Go Eat and Repeat!
Even though January is a month for New Years Resolutions and diets, I find that I crave warm, filling, stick-to-your-ribs kind of food. Soups, roasts, and especially pastas.
Now, I like pasta at any time of the year, but there is something so warm and comforting about a big bowl of it while the weather is cold and the days are short.
I recently found this recipe by Erren’s Kitchen and was in love! With a few simple tweaks it was perfect for me!
This dish is so simple which makes it perfect for a weeknight dinner or even for a lazy Sunday. The whole meal can be prepared while the pasta water boils and the noodles cook. Plus, talk about saving some major $$$ on this. Nothing like a filling, meat free dinner!
The best part though is how good your kitchen will smell while you make this. You got the garlicy tomato sauce simmering away and that carby aroma of cooking pasta. My mouth was watering the whole time!
So curl up with a bowl of this and just cozy on in 🙂
- ¾ cup half and half
- 1 (16oz) box linguine
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- Parmesan to top
- Basil leaves, to garnish
- Remove cream from the refrigerator. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add in linguine noodles and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pour olive oil into a large sauce pan on medium heat. Once warm, add prepared onions to the pan and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add in garlic and cook another 2 minutes.
- Turn sauce pan to low and add in crushed tomatoes, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Simmer on low heat while the pasta cooks (place a lid ajar over the sauce pan if it is splattering).
- With two minutes of pasta cooking time left, add the cream to the sauce. Stir until incorporated.
- Drain the noodles and place them in the sauce pan. Cook pasta in the sauce for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Remove pasta to a serving platter and top with Parmesan and garnish with basil leaves if desired.
