This makes about a cup and a half of the sauce so depending upon your own preference of sauce to pasta ratio adjust the amount of pasta you cook.
1 can Rotel tomatoes or another brand of diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/2 -1 pound pasta, any shape
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour (all purpose, spelt or rice)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cream or 1/2 & 1/2
1 clove garlic, pressed, optional
This is going to be great!
Put a large pot of water on the stove to boil. While it comes to a rolling boil (that's when the water boils rapidly with big bubbles) begin the sauce. The sauce will only take a few minutes so when the water boils add the pasta and stir occasionally.
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and stir in the flour of your choice. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, or until thick. Add the garlic, salt, Rotel tomatoes, and cream.
When the pasta is tender drain and toss with the sauce.
Serve with a big salad to offset the rich sauce and pasta.Quick and easy, ready in 15 minutes and so good.
