Steph's Creamy Tomato Parmesan Sauce

"This is not spicy! For a main dish I have added the Imitation crabmeat to this before and served over linguini. You can add any kind of seafood or even chicken and serve over pasta. Or for a side dish you can serve without meat and mix the sauce over the pasta. Try adding a variety of veggies! Possibilites are plenty!"

    Steph, the first 2 steps really make this recipe incredible... it starts as a sensory feast long before it ever touches the palate! I just love a recipe that has me from "hello!" I subbed fat free evaporated milk for the half and half to meet a dietary restriction for heart disease (it's often a good substitute for whole milk, half and half or cream). 2 servings made it to our plates as an entree over grilled chicken and the 2 leftover servings later debuted as a side dish after being baked for 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven with cauliflower under crispy toasted breadcrumbs. Both dishes were excellent. This is a versatile sauce that I am sure has many more faces... possibilities, possibilities!

    Talk about serendipity. I didn't have any blackened fish seasoning in the house and was going to use paprika instead, when I got a care package from Miller with some gorgeous smelling blackened fish seasoning. This is really good, and I think I made it extra special but substituting heavy cream for the half and half. I served this over bow-tie noodles together with some poached salmon as a main course. I'm going to make a triple batch next time to keep in the freezer, this is perfect for impressing company!
