I have a super duper simple dish to share with you today. There is just something that I love about cream and tomato/marinara sauce mixed together, and this pasta undeniably fulfilled my pasta craving.

This sauce can be very versatile in that you can serve it alone with a yummy piece of garlic bread or serve with shrimp and or chicken or as a side dish.
