Creamy Basil & Tomato Pasta

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Starrynews

This dish was inspired by combining several different recipes. (Note - we don't like a lot of extra sauce- just enough to cover the pasta - so if you like a lot of sauce, you may want to make a little more).

Loved the flavours in this dish! I used fresh tomatoes diced, and would definitely recommend doing it this way. Next time I would make more sauce because the flavour was so wonderful I wanted more of it! Thanks for a lovely recipe!
