ingredients for the amazing 15-minute fresh tomato parmesan pasta

  • Cherry tomatoes.

    are the best tomatoes for this recipe as they have a very strong, sweet, and fresh flavor. To get the most out of them I love to use different colors as they give different flavors. For example, yellow cherry tomatoes taste sour, and so do dark red tomatoes. But bright red cherry tomatoes taste very sweet and juicy. The combination is going to bring so much flavor to the dish, without adding any spices. If you don't have cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes work really well too. Now let's talk about the health benefits of eating tomatoes. They are a good source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin K1, and Vitamin B9 (folate). Tomatoes are rich in insoluble fiber.
  • Spinach.

    The perfect partner for tomatoes. The green leaf is a super healthy source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K1, Folic acid, Iron, and Calcium. Spinach also contains several plant compounds, such as Lutein, Kaempferol, nitrates, and quercetin. Each of those compounds can improve health, such as eye health, heart health, decrease the risk of cancer and chronic diseases, and many more. You can read more at
  • 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 I'm using in this meal. I try to keep it very simple with the number of ingredients we are using.
  • Oregano.

    Is perfect for the sauce. As said before I try to keep it simple with this pasta recipe, the few ingredients I'm using have to have a strong taste and at the same time complement each other.
  • heavy cream.

    For the creaminess and sweet taste.
  • Parmigiano Reggiano.

    I don't think this tomato pasta recipe would be the same without the cheese. This is the cherry on top.

  • Olive oil.

    Good quality olive oil to saute the onion, garlic, and herbs in it. The ingredients can set their aromas free and the tomatoes are going to absorb it.
  • Pasta.

    You are free to use your favorite Pasta. I simply love this Tomato parmesan sauce with spaghetti or fettuccine the most.
  • Tomato paste.

    The fresh tomatoes are giving the sauce its fresh taste, but with the tomato paste, we are bringing it to the next level. It gives the sauce a tomato-rich flavor and makes the sauce thick.
