I came across this recipe in one of my cookbooks and it was instantly intrigued. Whipped Cream folded in to a quick homemade tomato sauce. SO interesting!! I love a good tomato cream sauce, so I put this Pasta with Whipped Cream Tomato Sauce on the menu.

This Pasta with Whipped Cream Tomato Sauce only takes a few minutes to make. Get the pasta going, make the sauce, toss with cooked pasta and eat!!  You are ready to eat once the pasta has cooked. Easy peasy.

I used some diced pancetta in this Pasta with Whipped Cream Tomato Sauce. I buy it in the deli section at the grocery store. Near all the fancy cheese. I used half a pound of pancetta. If you can't find pancetta or don't want to pay for it, you can substitute bacon or prosciutto. It will still taste delicious!

We loved this Pasta with Whipped Cream Tomato Sauce. The sauce was light and airy with great flavor. Next time I might add some red pepper flakes for a kick. We served this pasta with some garlic bread and a salad. It was quick, easy and super delicious. Just as good as any Italian place!
