Pasta With Tomato Cream Sauce / Tri Colour Pasta With Tomato Cream Sauce

Pasta is one recipe that i cook very rarely but now-a-days at least once in a week i am cooking Pasta for kids. My little one loves pasta a lot so he ask me for pasta alternate day, if not he will not eat his meal one full day saying that he did not like rice or chapathi. So other day without any option i have to cook pasta for him. I usually make a stir fry type pasta dish for a change tried Pasta with Tomato Cream sauce. I had some left over Store bought Organic Tomato Basil Sauce and also little cream in the fridge. I wanted to use them soon so i browsed for tomato and cream based pasta recipes and finally my search ended with this Tomato Cream Sauce Pasta in Pioneer Woman. I slightly tweaked the recipe and skipped Parmesan and just topped with very little Garlic Parmesan sprinkle. This is a slight tangy, rich & creamy pasta with simple procedure. Not only kids even adults would love this a lot. I felt so creamy, rich and not my kind of dish, but my kids loved it a lot. Now off to the recipe.,

Hope some of my friends remember the below picture(last collage last pic) which shared on Facebook few weeks back. The pasta and tomato was arranged by my lil' one and he was taking pictures with my old P&S camera. I was stunned to see his presentation mind and felt proud too.
