Ingredients for the amazing 15-minute fresh tomato parmesan pasta

  • Cherry tomatoes. The best tomatoes for this recipe as they have a very strong, sweet, and fresh flavor. Using different colors enhances the dish with varying flavors; yellow cherry tomatoes taste sour, dark red tomatoes also taste sour, but bright red cherry tomatoes are very sweet and juicy. If cherry tomatoes are unavailable, grape tomatoes are a great substitute. Tomatoes are a good source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin K1, and Vitamin B9 (folate), and are rich in insoluble fiber.
  • Spinach. The perfect partner for tomatoes, this green leaf is a super healthy source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K1, Folic acid, Iron, and Calcium. Spinach contains several plant compounds like Lutein, Kaempferol, nitrates, and quercetin, which can improve health, including eye and heart health, decrease the risk of cancer and chronic diseases..
  • Onion. One red onion to flavor things up.
  • Garlic. We are going to stamp the garlic so it can release all its flavor and the sauce can absorb it all.
  • Thyme. This super healthy herb is one of the very few herbs, aka spices, used in this meal. The goal is to keep the number of ingredients simple.
  • Oregano. Perfect for the sauce. In this pasta recipe, the few ingredients used need to have a strong taste and complement each other well.
  • Heavy cream. For the creaminess and sweet taste.
  • Parmigiano Reggiano. Essential for this tomato pasta recipe, acting as the cherry on top.
  • Olive oil. Good quality olive oil to sauté the onion, garlic, and herbs in it, allowing the ingredients to set their aromas free for the tomatoes to absorb.
  • Pasta. You are free to use your favorite pasta. Spaghetti or fettuccine is highly recommended for this Tomato Parmesan sauce.
  • Tomato paste. While the fresh tomatoes provide a fresh taste, the tomato paste enhances the sauce to the next level by giving it a tomato-rich flavor and thickening the sauce.
