20 minute dinner: Pasta with creamy marinara sauce
In fact, I whipped this up in 15. I loved it. My son loved it. My daughter refused to taste it.
PASTA WITH CREAMY MARINARA SAUCE
Finely chop 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a carrot. Saute in olive oil till soft. Add one can of italian-style chopped tomatoes (I used S&W), a pinch of dried thyme, a pinch of dried marjoram, a bit of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 5 minutes (or longer, if you have the time), remove from heat. Roughly puree the sauce with an immersion blender, then stir in 1 T. heavy cream and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
