Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Aren’t we all tired with the same old spaghetti sauce? Well I am…

Since I’m such a thrill-seeker guess what I added??

Creammmm! Lots and lots of it!

Boy it was goooood!

Don’t think too much about the olive oil and butter mixture.  Olive oil is good for your skin and butter is good for your taste buds. Just do it.

I added in a lot of onions because I can’t live without em.


Pour in the tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce and let it simmer for 20 minutes or so till its becomes sort of a darker red and slightly thicker.

You can add mushrooms, capsicum, carrots, chicken, prawns..

The list goes on.

Me on the other hand, I added the chop chye (chinese stir fry veggies) that I made the night before. It contained oyster sauce and somehow it only made my sauce taste more awesomer than it already was!

Like I said, I’m a thrill seeker.

Pour in the cream. (I used double cream cos that’s what was in the fridge)

Alllll of it.


Add in the Parmesan cheese as well, but switch off the heat first.

Mix it up real good.

It will look like this.

You then proceed to add parsley or basil flakes to the sauce.

You then stir in the sauce with your pasta which you will cook till al dente.

Then you eat it.

Allll of it.
