Creamy Tomato Sauce

Here is a family favorite from one of our members. I always like trying a family favorite. It's nice to know someone else with kids likes it.

Creamy Tomato Sauce

3/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T butter or margarine
2 14-1/2 ounce cans of whole Italian style tomatoes, cut-up or 2 lbs ripe,
fresh plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 t pepper
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 T snipped parsley
8 ounces pasta

Saute onion and garlic in butter. Stir in undrained tomatoes, sugar,salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Slowly add the cream, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 3 minutes then remove from heat and add parsley.

Serve sauce over cooked pasta.

This is one of our favorites. It's especially yummy if you put some cooked Italian sausage in at the end. About 3/4lb.
