20 Minute Creamy Pink Pasta

Pink pasta ingredients: -pasta -onion -garlic -olive oil -salt and pepper -tomato paste -tomato sauce -heavy whipping cream -Parmesan -fresh basil (optional)

Step 1: Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil until softened. (At the same time, boil water to cook pasta in a separate pot.)

Here's how to make the pink pasta:

Step 2: Add the tomato paste to the onions and garlic. Stir the tomato paste and cook for about 30 seconds - 1 minute.

Step 3: Add the tomato sauce and heavy whipping cream to the tomato paste, onions and garlic. Bring the sauce to a simmer.

Step 4: Simmer the pink sauce for 6 - 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce is finished when it has thickened slightly.

Step 5: Add drained, cooked pasta to the sauce. Use tongs to gently toss the pasta together with the sauce.

Step 6: Next, go ahead and sprinkle in the grated Parmesan cheese and mix it into the pasta with the tongs.

Step 7: You can tear a few leaves of fresh basil to add to the pasta right before eating (this is optional!).

RECIPE TIPS: -this pasta is best when eaten right away, but leftovers will keep in the fridge for 3 - 4 days. -reheat the pink pasta gently on low heat to maintain the sauce's creamy texture.
