Why I Love This Recipe

Last night I was looking for something between traditional spaghetti sauce and a white creamy sauce to serve with pasta, to make for my boyfriend. I ran across this recipe, and yum! The nutmeg adds a unique twist to the flavor

Ingredients You'll Need

1 (24 to 26 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce*
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
6-8 fresh basil leaves, torn or chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
12 oz. angel hair pasta
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Combine the spaghetti sauce, whipping cream, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Simmer on med-low heat for 45 minutes - DO NOT BOIL.

Cook the angel hair pasta in boiling water to al dente, approximately 4-5 minutes.

Serve the sauce over the pasta, and garnish with the fresh Parmesan cheese.

*I used Bertolli Five Cheese with Asiago & Fontina Cheeses

**Adding chicken or shrimp to this recipe would further enhance it's awesome flavor!
