Tomato Herb Cream Sauce




6 servings

Tomato Herb Cream Sauce is our version of “Italian gravy.” The layers of flavor build as you move through the recipe with beautifully fragrant aromas filling the home. Our Italian gravy is creamy, cheesy, and fresh, making this sauce absolutely irresistible. Tomato Herb Cream Sauce is enjoyable over any kind of pasta, so use what you enjoy! We like to serve it with penne, ravioli, and especially cheese tortellini. When making this sauce, make extra as it freezes well and makes an easy dinner!
