Tomato Pesto Cream Sauce for Pasta

Filled Pasta with Tomato Pesto Cream Sauce

I love stuffed pastas. Fill them with cheese, meat, vegetables, it really doesn’t matter.  Cover them with any kind of sauce, it doesn’t matter.  Just give me stuffed pastas. These little babies are Buitoni’s.

It takes four packages to feed my crew, so I usually only buy these if they are on a mega sale (or reduced for quick sale).  Once in a while, I splurge and buy one container and don’t share.  But that isn’t very nice.
With this recipe, you could use any kind of pasta….even plain if you so choose.  Ravioli, tortellini, agnolotti…it doesn’t matter what you stuff them with, this sauce will go.

  • 1 14 ounce can petite diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup prepared pesto sauce
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp Tabasco sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. In a saucepan, combine tomatoes, cream and pesto until well combined.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and heat through, but do not boil or cream will curdle.

  1. >I SO wish Buitoni put their stuffed pastas in bigger packages…like big enough to feed more than 1 and a half people. The sauce is fantastic though!

  2. >Love the sound of that sauce …and shame on you for not sharing but you're okay, least you told the truth….

  3. >This looks so very good. It is similar to something that I make… I will be making at the coast in 10 days. YUM…. I will have to give this one a whirl…

  4. >Your Tomato Pesto Cream Sauce sounds delicious..especially with the splash of Tabasco sauce. I've been looking for these different pastas from Buitoni and can't seem to find 'em in my local mkts.
