Tomato and Mascapone Sauce Recipe for Pasta.  This is a really quick and easy recipe to make a lovely, creamy sauce for pasta.   I think it works really well with penne or fusili pasta but it would work with spaghetti too.

You can change it up a little if you like, add tuna and sweetcorn, or some chopped ham to the finished dish.

Feel free to add more herbs than you can see me adding here – I was making this for my daughter who does not like it ‘too herby’. If you don’t have fresh herbs, then you could also add dried. Any Italian herbs like basil or oregano work well.
