Steps

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a big pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and simmer for three to five minutes, or until it becomes transparent. Add the minced garlic and stir. Cook for a further one to two minutes, or until fragrant.

Step 2

Pour in the crushed tomatoes, sugar, dried oregano, dried basil, and red pepper flakes if using. Stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the mixture to simmer for 10-12 minutes, allowing the flavours to meld and the sauce to thicken.

Step 3

Reduce the heat to low and pour in the heavy cream, stirring continuously. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, ensuring the sauce is well combined and creamy. Sprinkle in the grated Parmesan cheese and stir until melted and fully incorporated into the sauce.

Step 4

Cook the noodles according to the directions on the box while the sauce is boiling. Drain and set aside.

Step 5

Add the cooked pasta to the sauce, tossing until the pasta is evenly coated. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and additional Parmesan cheese if desired.

Step 6

Plate the creamy tomato pasta and serve immediately. Serve it with a side order of garlic bread and your favourite wine for a genuinely cozy and delightful dinner. Buon appetito!
