Sometimes the ordinary every day back of the box recipes need a little twist. For years my sister’s and I have been making the San Girogio Creamy Garlic pasta as printed on the back of the box, but tonight I took the good as it is Creamy Garlic pasta to a whole new level of yumminess!

Bruschetta Pasta

1 large tomato or 1 can diced tomato

1 medium red onion

Creamy Garlic Pesto Sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3/4 cups vegetable, chicken, or beef broth

3/4 milk or light cream

1/3 cup parmesan

salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon pesto, see previous post for pesto recipe or buy it pre-made

  1. Prepare pasta as described on box.
  2. Heat oil over medium heat, saute garlic for about 1 minute. Stir in flour until smooth. Add milk and broth, heat to boiling, stir constantly until thick. Stir in  Parmesan cheese. Stir in Pesto.
  3. Saute onions in a bit of oil. Add tomatos and simmer until warm.
  4. Toss sauce with pasta. Serve tomato and onion mixture on top.
