Pasta with Rose Sauce
Feeling like having pasta tonight? You might like to try this recipe.
This is an easy rose sauce recipe, that takes little time to make and is absolutely delicious!
If you are anything like us, (my husband likes white sauce, I on the other hand, prefer the tomato sauce) you will like this sauce recipe. Rose sauce is a combination of white sauce and tomato sauce together. Finally, there is a pasta sauce that we can both enjoy!
I used organic vegetable noodles, Creste di Gallo, (from Costco) but you feel free to use what ever noodles you like. I find it it, goes well with vegetable rotini noodles too. Very easy to make. In fact, this is the easiest rose sauce recipe ever!!! Still do not believe me? Give it a try and... Enjoy!!
3 cups dried vegetable pasta ( I used Organic Vegetable Creste di Gallo )
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1-25 oz. jar (750 gr.) organic tomato and basil pasta sauce (or similar)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano, for serving
Pasta served with rose sauce and slices of garlic bread
Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside covered to keep warm.
Sauté garlic in the olive oil, just for a few seconds, to release flavour. Stir in cream cheese to melt; Add heavy cream and the parmesan cheese, and bring to a boil.
Slowly, while stirring, add the tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes to blend flavours.
To serve, place pasta on a plate; top with rose sauce. Top with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
Serve with your choice of garlic bread, if you wish or you may like to try my recipe for homemade Garlic Breadsticks.
Add a Caesar salad of your choice to complete the meal.
