Creamy Tomato Sauce & Penne
My kids and I love pasta and sauce, so most days are some variation of that, for tomato sauces I always add a big dollop of tomato paste because the thicker sauce makes less mess and it also means more concentrated tomato goodness. I am on a spinach kick lately so this sauce is tomato paste, cream cheese, a little chicken stock to thin, herbs and spices, and a little spinach. I thought it looked a little boring with just the sauce and pasta so I added a little cheese for the pictures but you really don't need it. The best part is that the whole big pot of it only cost me about $3 and serves 4, which makes it $0.75 per serving, YEAH!!!
I don't know the calories, but I only put about 3 tablespoons of the cream cheese so it's still very figure friendly.
