I love this pasta, I really do! The combination of a fruity and creamy sauce, the sautéed cherry tomatoes and the delicious soft stracchino cheese makes a really delicious and inexpensive pasta dish. It is topped off with lovely oregano and fresh basil. In just 25 minutes, we’re already done…. allora… andiamo!
