Pasta with Creamy Tomato Mince Sauce – 15 minutes from go to whoa

Pasta with Creamy Tomato Mince sauce

I found this recipe on Framed Cooks. It looked so simple but I was worried about cooking it for my Italian husband because cream and tomato don’t really equate to a typical pasta sauce. But I took a deep breath and dove in. It takes no longer than the time it takes to heat the water and cook the pasta.


Pasta with Creamy Tomato Mince Sauce

Olive oil
500g mince meat
1 Onion – chopped up
A can of chopped tomatoes
1 cup of cream
2 tbsp tomato paste
Salt and pepper
Pasta – penne

Cook the pasta as normal.
Heat oil in a pan and brown mince together with the onion.
Add tomatoes, cream and tomato paste, simmer 10 minutes.
Season and add to cooked pasta in a big bowl.
Add grated parmesan at the table.
