This creamy Tomato Sauce is delicious as a topping for noodles. We love this on Farfelle (bow ties) or Fettuccine. Cook's note: Read the ingredients on your Italian seasoning to make sure that you like all of the ingredients. I have several friends who dislike thyme, so this it's important that I purchase seasoning without thyme (or make my own blend). I used a mixture of yellow, purple, and red cherry tomatoes in this sauce, but it will work well with only red ones if that's all you can find. The total cost for this recipe is $7.25 or about $1.21 per serving.
