Servings: 6 servings
- 1 lb penne pasta or spaghetti noodles
- ½ cup olive oil
- 1 onion cubed
- 3-4 garlic cloves minced
- ½ cup tomato paste
- 1 cup heavy cream or half and half
- 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
- ½ cup pasta water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- basil for garnish
Boil your pasta according to the package instructions. Save ½ cup of the pasta water before draining. The starchy pasta water will make the sauce saucier. Set aside!
In a large skillet on medium high heat add the olive oil and cubed onions. Saute' the onions for a few minutes until translucent then add in the minced garlic and saute' for another 1-2 minutes.
Add in the tomato paste, heavy cream, butter, pasta water, (some add vodka), crushed red pepper (optional) parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and mix until combined.
Add in your drained pasta and mix in with the sauce. Garnish with fresh basil and enjoy!
