Homemade Blush Sauce for Pasta

Pasta with Blush Sauce
Pasta with Blush Sauce

This is a tried and true homemade blush sauce. Simple ingredients, and no preservatives with sauces from the jar.


I package (8 oz) cream cheese

1 can Diced tomatoes

Spices (garlic-lots, pepper, Italian seasoning, salt to taste:::any other spices that tickle your fancy)

Add tomatoes and cut up pieces of cream cheese in the blender with spices. Blend on high till smooth. If too thick, add milk or cream.

Heat on very low heat, stirring constantly to prevent burning, till heated through.

Serve over pasta and garnish with shredded parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley.

This makes a lot of sauce and freezes well!

Filling and great for a meatless meal.

Should feed 6 people.

Tuesday’s Tip

Spaghetti tip::::always make a double batch,  freeze in containers to be used at a later date. Easy enough to do, but did you know:::::

Add a container of cottage cheese to the sauce…..when you want to make lasagna, the cottage cheese is already in the sauce. No running out to the store to pick it up.

Thanks to my buddy Angela for this tip!
