This creamy pasta dinner can be made in less than 20 minutes and tastes like it is straight out of your favorite Italian restaurant. Popular with the kids and adults, this dish seems too tasty to be so easy!
Over medium high heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and Italian seasoning. Flash cook the garlic, about 1 minute, and then add crushed tomatoes. Add heavy cream and bring to a simmer.
Add shredded Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then immediately reduce to low heat and stir continuously, until the cheese melts and the sauce is smooth. Then stir in the basil giving it 2-3 minutes to wilt.
Remove from heat and toss pasta with the sauce. Garnish with additional parmesan and/or fresh basil. Enjoy!
If you like your pasta to be more saucy, use 12 oz of pasta instead of 16 oz.
