This was fantastic! I did make some minor adjustments to the recipe. I used one 14 oz. can diced tomatoes and one 14 oz. can of tomato puree instead of the 28 oz. jar of pasta sauce. I used cream instead of half and half, and I added 1 Tbsp. of sugar. We served it over cheese tortellini and it was delicious!
Sorry, this was just kind of boring for us. I love vodka cream sauces and don't find them to be bland at all - maybe that is what I was missing from this. I will not be making again.
Yum. I could eat this sauce with a spoon. Very delicious. I used heavy whipping cream since that is what I had, and then tossed it with 24 ozs cooked spaghetti. Think next time I will use less spaghetti so that it is saucier. I wanted to dip my bread in this. Will definately make again!
Winner Dinner! What a easy & wonderful tasting sauce. I used Classico Traditional Sweet Basil sauce. I loved the hint of nutmeg in the sauce (I used fresh grated nutmeg, so it may have been a bit stronger). Teamed with Fast & Friendly Meatballs from this site for a family pleasing meal.
This was very good. I used milk instead of half and half and some stewed tomatoes blended up instead of the pasta sauce. It took a while to boil the extra liquid off, but it came out great.
So easy and so good, did not change a thing.
Thank goodness I heeded others advice about the excess sauce - used 12oz pasta instead of only 8oz and it still alot of sauce leftover. BUT it was delicious! I too used a "garden chunky" pasta sauce (that has green peppers, onions & mushrooms) and I steamed some fresh broccoli - I placed the pasta on the plate, then the sauce, then the broccoli and finally, sprinkled the parmesan and a little mozzerella cheese overall. Very "pretty" and VERY tasty. No guest would guess that it was soooo easy to make. Thank you much Brenda!!
While this was good, it was a lot of work for something that you can pretty much get from a jar anyway - for example a pasta vodka creamy tomato sauce. I did make it exactly what the recipe called for and served it over tortellini, but it is definitely NOT a quick meal. It takes some time to prepare.
