One of the most stressful parts of my day is when I realize I don’t have a dinner plan. Isn’t that the worst? I start frantically tossing things around in my fridge like a crazy woman.

How do you make creamy tomato pasta?
I’m glad you asked because there’s not much to it! Scroll to the bottom for the written recipe, but in a nutshell you’ll need to prepare a large box of pasta, cook a few veggies in a skillet, add seasonings and tomatoes, then add the creamy ingredients (cheese, sour cream and heavy cream). Stir until heated through and you’re all done. Dinner will be on the table in 30 minutes! This recipe is a dream!
A few notes about Creamy Tomato Pasta Skillet:
Replace the marinara sauce with spaghetti sauce or an extra can of diced tomatoes, if desired (if that’s all you have on hand).
Replace the medium shells with another variety of pasta that is similar in size (penne, elbow macaroni, bowtie, etc)
I use heavy whipping cream for this recipe, but half and half or whole milk are suitable replacements.
A 10-oz. package of frozen spinach (thawed) can replace the fresh spinach in this recipe.
