Pink Sauce Pasta Recipe

Penne with Pink Tomato Cream Sauce

This penne with Pink Sauce Recipe is a simple Italian pink sauce with 2 unique spins that set it apart from the rest.

Step 1

Make the Italian Pink Sauce Base

Garlic, tomato paste, a can of crushed tomatoes, and 2 Chiles De Arbol set this pink tomato sauce apart from the rest. 

Step 2

Add the Cream and more Garlic to the Sauce

After simmering for 30 minutes, the tomato sauce turns pink from heavy cream, and gets another burst of garlicky flavor.

Step 3

Add The Penne Pasta to the Pink Sauce

Toss the penne in the sauce for 1 minute until the sauce thickens a little and clings to the pasta.

Step 4


I like to top my Pink Sauce Pasta with a little extra spice in the form of red pepper flakes. But this is totally optional.
