“A delicious and simple tomato pasta sauce which I've been using for years and is the first one I taught my kids how to make. The fresh garlic at the end, uncooked, is what makes it really tasty. I hesitate to post it because the cream will curdle if the heat is too high. It sometimes takes a couple of times before you get the feel of how much heat it will take. It will still taste ok, but won't look really yummy. Do remember to dilute the paste with water first. Very important. All quantities are flexible. Substituting with milk or garlic powder will absolutely not work.”
