Tomato Cream Sauce

I know it’s Friday and that we typically have some kind of sandwich on Fridays (usually Burgers), but I’m not one for being a stickler about schedules.  And since we had pizza on Tuesday, (our usual pasta night), we’ll be having pasta tonight.

I’m not joking when I say this sauce is awesome.  It’s got that “restaurant quality” taste if you just take the few extra steps beyond pouring the jar of sauce over your favorite pasta (which is what I usually do).

Tomato Cream Sauce

  • 1 28oz jar of tomato pasta sauce (go for the cheap stuff)
  • 1 c half-n-half
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp pizza seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 1 8oz pkg of favorite pasta
  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In medium sauce pan, combine pasta sauce, half-n-half, garlic, salt, nutmeg, pizza seasoning, and basil.  Simmer over low heat for 30-40 minutes (don’t boil).  While this is simmering, cook the pasta according to package directions.  Toss sauce with pasta and top with parmesan.

**I added some sweet basil italian sausage and mushrooms for added yumminess!**

School Program

Sorry, there’s not gonna be any recipe in this post…It’s all about me bragging on me kids, particularly Cade and Reagan.  They had their school program last night, and the theme was Music From Around the World.

That’s our lil’ hoola girl in the top row 😀

Rae was chosen to be one of the hoola girls for the Hawaiian song.  She’s 3rd from the right.

She just looks so darn cute!!

And here’s my giant 2nd grader 😀 (i have no idea what the girl is doing)

They turned on the stage lights and the kids freaked…lol

Aaaaaa!  My eyes!

Cade is at the very top center of the pic and Rae is down in the right corner (in navy dress and orange hoola stuff)

This is the entire 1st & 2nd Grade classes!

Cade and his awesome teacher, Mrs. Nicks

Rae and her fantastic teacher, Mrs. Mendoza (she was Cader’s teacher last year, too)

Yeah!  It’s over! (so beautiful!!)

And this is a random pic of Clarky….with his blue ice-cream ‘stache…because he’s just cool like that.
