Creamy Tomato Sauce with Cheese on Rainbow Pasta

If you re looking for another way to use all those tomatoes here is a recipe you might like.  You can use fresh or canned. It combines tomatoes with a cheese sauce to make a great version of mac and cheese.

Creamy Tomato Sauce with Cheese


3 T. Butter or oil

3 T. flour

¾ c. milk

½ c. chicken or vegetable broth

1 (14 ½ oz.) can diced tomatoes or 2 cups peeled and diced fresh tomatoes*

½ t. red pepper flakes

½ t. pepper

1 t. oregano

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 c. grated Romano cheese

Hot cooked pasta


Combine butter and flour in pan and stir together over medium heat. Add milk and broth and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes and seasonings and simmer 5 minutes. Add cheeses; stir until melted and smooth. Serve tossed in hot pasta.

* You can drain the tomatoes, if you like. I prefer to leave them with all their juices to flavor the sauce. You can add a little more flour if you like a thicker sauce.
