Creamy Margherita Pasta



Pasta pasta pasta. My two year old loves pasta. Almost every night she asks if we are having pasta and if I say yes it's met with cheers! This creamy cheesy pasta was delicious! This recipe was adapted from Carlsbad Cravings.

1lb penne pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup onion (chopped)
6 roma tomatoes (chopped)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cup milk
2 tsp chicken bouillon
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup chopped basil

Cook the pasta according to directions and drain,  reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Melt the butter and oil over medium low heat in a large skillet. Turn the heat up to medium and saute the onion and half of the tomatoes for 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 second. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Turn the heat to low and whisk in the chicken broth then milk until the sauce is smooth. Turn the heat back up to medium and bring to a simmer. Stir in the chicken bouillon, dried parsley, dried oregano, salt and pepper. Keep stirring until the sauce has thickened slightly. Turn the heat down and add the cream cheese then stir in the parmesan cheese and mozzarella until smooth. Stir in the remaining tomatoes and fresh basil. Toss with the pasta. If the sauce has thickened too much then thin out with the pasta water until the constancy is right.
