Cheesy Tomato Pasta

Happy Monday everyone..and a very happy St. Patrick's Day! Thankfully we're not getting any snow up here today, though the real feel outside is about 9*.  Not quite normal for the middle of March.

Needless to say we're still eating a lot of comfort food around here still.  I was going to make the every favorite Spicy Sausage Pasta the other night, but halfway through I realized I was missing a few ingredients.  Not to be deterred, I made a few substitutions and was not only able to save dinner, but came up with something really delicious!  So if you're looking for something quick and easy, come check out my:

Cheesy Tomato Pasta
-1 medium onion chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic chopped {or however much you like
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup tomato sauce {homemade or jarred kind is fine}
-2 cups of chicken broth
-1/2 cup of cream
-1 lb pasta
-Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 oz pepper jack cheese shredded

{see, all very similar to the SSP, but without the sausage....or spice}

Heat oil in skillet until smoking slightly.

Add in the onions and garlic and cook through a few minutes.

Next stir in the tomato sauce.  I just eye-balled this, but it was around 1/2 cup or so.

Pour in the chicken broth and cream, and then add in the pasta.

Stir continuously for a while, making sure all the pasta gets coated in liquid.

Then cover the pan {I had to use tin foil} and put the heat on low for about 20 min.

Meanwhile, shred up the pepper jack cheese.

Stir into the pasta which should be cooked all the way through at this point.

Mix all together and enjoy!!

Have you every had to make some substitutions mid-recipe?  How did it turn out?

Stay warm everyone!!
