This Luscious Tomato Cream Sauce Pasta tastes amazing - and it's amazingly simple to make!! I describe it as luscious because the tomatoes, which are still slightly chunky become this thick, creamy, smooth, velvety, and flavorful sauce. The combination of the San Marzano tomatoes and sour cream takes a simple red sauce to a perfect pink heavenly cream sauce!
Add the garlic to a preheated large skillet with a teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Saute the garlic for 2 minutes on medium to low heat stirring it around so it doesn't burn.
Slowly whisk in the sour cream mixture to the tomatoes in the skillet. Cook for another 5 minutes until the sauce thickens and starts to bubble (lightly cover with aluminum foil if it starts to splatter). Add salt and pepper, mix, then add more to taste.
Stir in the basil, leaving a little for garnish. If you cooked the pasta ahead of time and it is cold, put it in a strainer and run warm water over it to soften and separate it. Stir the cooked pasta into the tomato sauce.
Serve in a bowl or plate and garnish with basil and grated parmesan cheese (if you like). Enjoy!
