I found this recipe
for Tuscan Pasta with Tomato-Basil Cream sauce on Pinterest
and decided to put it to the test tonight in an effort to prove that YES, I will, in fact, make something that I “pin.”
I luckily had all of the ingredients except for the Ssun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce. I found this recipe
for Quick and Easy Alfredo sauce, which I whipped up to add to the dish. I also added some frozen spinach to the sauce to give it a (tiny) healthy kick.
With the leftovers from the bridal shower this weekend I made a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad for our appetizer, which complimented the pasta well.
Here is the real-life version of the dish, complete with paper towel napkin, which looks a bit different from the professional image…
…but still tasted great!
The verdict is…it was delish! Though we normally don’t cook with a creamy sauce, we were both was pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed the flavor.
Thank you Pinterest and HokieBetsy (who happens to be our awesome cousin)
for the great recipe!
