Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

By Vivianpangkitchen @vivianpangkitch
Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce Pin It Tomatoes make me think of pasta sauce. My kids like spaghetti with tomato base sauce. I used to cook with fresh tomatoes but not today. After reading The Pioneer Woman Tomato Cream Sauce I want to give it a try. I used canned tomato purée. It is cheap, economy and easy available at any grocery stores. This canned tomato is packed with flavor. However it is extremely sour to Asian taste (I believe :P). Therefore I added water/stock (liquid) to thinner out the sourness.
For healthy choice (and also easy available) I replace heavy cream with evaporated milk. The result is great and my kids love it! This great cream tomato sauce will be one of my family favorite pasta meals from now on :)
