8 oz penne or other tube pasta
1 (14.5) oz can Diced tomatoes (I like petite diced)
1/2 c. fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
3/4 c. heavy whipping cream
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
I always double this recipe! Cook pasta according to package directions. Cook tomatoes over medium-high heat in skillet until thickened, about 5-10 minutes. Season to taste. I usually add garlic powder and onion powder for my flavor along with salt and pepper. Reduce heat; add basil and cream. Heat through. DO NOT BOIL. Toss with pasta and cheese. Serve immediately. This can be a side dish or the main meal. I like to add cooked chicken to make it more substantial and serve with a salad and garlic bread.
