    HotMitts's Note:

    I've tried several tomato cream sauce recipes. Some with sausage, some with chicken and some with shrimp. All very good but this one is my favorite. A very large recipe. Easily enough sauce for 3 pounds pasta. If you are not feeding an army go ahead and make full sauce recipe anyway and freeze the leftover sauce. It thaws and reheats very nicely. I typically buy the large can of San Marzano tomatoes at Costco. It's so much cheaper. I really think there is a difference in taste with the San Marzano. Just be sure to buy tomatoes that are packed in puree. Makes the sauce even richer. Adjust the seasonings as you like. I seem to make spicier every time I make by adding more garlic, and red pepper. So good!

      This dish was GREAT! Tangy and robust, I was well rewarded for the small amount of work to make this sauce. I reduced the recipe to 1/4 of the original, cooked 2 1/2 oz. of dry rigatoni and that was a hearty serving for 2, with enough sauce left for at least 1 more meal for two. I can't decide if I wanna share the leftovers, or freeze them cause I'm greedy! LOL I'll probably share - I have the recipe now! Thanks for sharing, HotMitts! Made for PAC Fall '12.
