Quick Creamy Tomato Pasta
As a busy mum, I sometimes get so wrapped up in things I forget about organising meals for Madame until she says ‘mummy I’m hungry’. Quick check of the watch and realise, yes, it’s dinner time and I need something quick. This is one of those recipes that you can throw together in about 10 minutes.
2 TBSP olive oil
½ an onion chopped
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2 TBSP of cream cheese
1 tsp of dried basil
50g of pasta per child (any shape will do)
- Start cooking the pasta. I’m not going to tell you how as the instructions are on the back of the pack.
- To make the sauce. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onions until soft (approx 3-5 minutes).
- Tip in the chopped tomatoes, bring to a boil, turn down add the cream cheese and basil. Heat through.
- Drain the pasta a mix into the sauce.
I tend to serve it with sweet corn or cucumber slices on the side. If I have a bit more time to preheat the oven, as ours takes about 30 minutes to heat, I serve it with garlic bread.
