Before you make this easy tomato pasta recipe, I would like to know your thoughts on the on going debate on whether red sauce pasta or white sauce pasta is better. Personally? I prefer a white sauce pasta because it is always so creamy, cheesy and just so yum. However, the red sauce pasta devotees are right when they say that red sauce pasta has more intense flavors. Would you like to challenge the debate? Then try this recipe and see it for yourself.

The step-by-step guide to making tomato pasta

Start off by preparing your ingredients. We do this by finely chopping the onions, removing the tomatoes from the can, and by measuring the different spices needed, this helps in making the cooking process quicken.

Al dente pasta is pasta that is cooked but still has a slight uncooked texture. I would describe the texture as cooked pasta but at the same time pasta that is firm enough to not break when handled or mixed.
how to cook pasta until it is al dente:
- Read the packet instructions. Believe it or not we often rush to make pasta and always overlook actually reading the instructions. The instructions are always a great guideline to making al dente pasta.
- Keep an eye on your pasta when making it. Always check to see if it is the right texture.
- Be patient, you will not always get it right, however, you can always try to make al dente pasta next time.
make the creamy pasta sauce
If you want to make your sauce extra creamy then use cream as a replacement for the milk required in the recipe. Adding two cups of cream can make your easy tomato pasta dish overwhelmingly creamy. I recommend you add one part cream and one part milk. That gives you a nice balance of creamy yet not overpowering pasta.
