Pink Sauce Pasta

I have been seeing a lot of recipes for pink sauce pasta going around, and with two kids, I figured I had to try it out myself!

This is an interesting recipe, and I had my doubts when I heard this had cheddar cheese in it.


1/2 lb pasta
3 tablespoons butter
Olive oil
Tomato paste
1 cup tomato sauce
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 parmesan cheese
Basil (optional)
Salt, pepper (to taste)


Cook 1/2 lb pasta until al dente. I like to use ziti, cavatappi, or rotini – something that holds sauce well.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

Heat 3 tablespoons of butter and a little bit of olive oil in a pan.

On medium heat, add in 3 cloves of minced garlic and cook until fragrant.

Add 3 tablespoons of tomato paste and mix.

Heat, then add in 1 cup tomato sauce.

Bring to a summer, then add in 3/4 cup of heavy cream.

Add in seasoning – salt, pepper.

Add in 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and 1/2 parmesan cheese.

Heat until cheese is melted, and add in some basil if desired.

Add in your pasta. Mix thoroughly and top with parmesan if desired.
