Pasta in Tomato Cream Sauce

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.
