Creative — and Quick! — Pink Sauce


pink sauceA few weeks ago, I was at a party where bow-tie pasta with mushrooms and pink sauce was served. It was incredibly delicious. So, I went into research mode to find out how to make pink sauce myself.

Turns out, it is pretty much marinara sauce with added cream.

That gave me the idea for last night’s meal. I purchased a small container (one pind) of whipping cream and mixed it into a jar of basic marinara sauce.

Voila! Very tasty results.

I also sautéd some onion, garlic and mushrooms. Tossed that with bow-tie pasta and mixed in my off-the-cuff pink sauce. Dinner took about 30 minutes to make and it was a hit!
