Pasta with Tomato-Blue Cheese Sauce


Last weekend we had some good friends over for dinner. When I started planning our little dinner party, I had originally planned on making a Vodka Cream Pasta. But as I was flipping through my recipe binder I found a recipe from the amazing Pioneer Woman, for Pasta with Tomato-Blue Cheese Sauce and realized I already had most of the ingredients to make it.


While I was putting the dish together, I made a drink we used to make in college. It’s much better with peach schnapps ;o) You mix together Sprite, Hawaiian Punch and Orange Sherbet in a pitcher and serve.


This pasta dish turned out wonderfully and was so easy to make (just be sure to pay attention when sautéing the garlic so that it doesn’t burn). The recipe says that it serves six. There were four of us for dinner and we ate leftovers for the rest of the week, so it definitely serves more than six without being doubled.

***Mine never got to thick, so I didn’t have to use the half and half. But it never got thick enough so I made a mix of cornstarch and water and added it until the sauce became a consistency that I wanted. ***

Of course Ree never lets me down and this meal was a hit! I served it with a salad and dinner rolls.
