Just as Ree over at The Pioneer Woman states, tomato cream sauces really are the best of both worlds. They have the savory-ness of the tomato, but also the richness of the cream!
Since I love tomato cream sauces, and artichokes are probably one of my favorite foods, I knew I needed to make this dish right away!
The pasta was absolutely excellent! It was super easy to make and full of flavor!
