Tuscan Pasta...Perfect for Cold Wintery Days

The Beauty of Winter





Winter days beg for hearty, hot Italian Meals with
Freshly baked Rustic Italian Bread


Tuscan Pasta

1 (16-oz.) jar sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce
2 tablespoons white wine
2 medium-size fresh tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Garnish: fresh basil strips

Prepare pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, pour Alfredo sauce into a medium saucepan. Pour wine into sauce jar; cover tightly, and shake well. Stir wine mixture into saucepan. Stir in chopped tomatoes and 1/2 cup chopped basil, and cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Toss with pasta, and top evenly with 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Garnish with fresh basil!

It is so funny that we both are doing Italian recipes. We are cold also so today it is chicken and gnocchi soup with homemade rolls.
