  • 300 g pasta of choice, I used penne
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.5 cups tomato passata (or puree or sauce-not tomato paste)
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube, crumbled
  • pinch sugar
  • sprinkle of red chili flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Cook the pasta to al dente according to package instructions, then drain, reserving some of the pasta water.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add the tomato passata, dried basil, crumbled chicken bouillon cube, sugar, red chili flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for a few minutes, then add the cream, milk and the shredded mozzarella.
  • Add the cooked pasta, toss to combine and warm through for a few minutes. If sauce is too thick, add a splash of pasta water. Enjoy immediately!



You can add shrimp or chicken, or serve this on the side of steak. But plain like this is just delicious!
