pastaHome for the holidays! It's weird to like...not have homework. I will take advantage of this new freedom. Prepare yourself for Christmas cookie posts.

Tomato Mascarpone Sauce
adapted from Jamieoliver.com
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
a bit of fresh, chopped basil
1 onion, chopped
4 oz. mascarpone cheese
salt and pepper
Put a little olive oil in the bottom of a medium sized saucepan, and throw the onions in when the oil gets hot. Crush the garlic and add it to the onions. Add the tomatoes and basil, and let it simmer. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes. When you're ready to eat, add the salt, pepper and mascarpone and stir until everything is mixed together smoothly. Add the pasta directly to the sauce. Serve right away, and with a little parmesan and crushed red pepper flakes if you so desire.
