Tomato Based Pasta Sauce ..... Monday Evening Pasta ..... Mary's "Make it Quick" Recipe

Tomato Based Pasta Sauce  
Monday Evening Pasta
Daughter Mary never has a name for her pasta sauces but the taste buds are awakened and you know something this good should definitely have a written recipe to share. I will share the approximate amounts from my observations.
2 cups vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
1 red pepper, cut into pieces
2 garlic cloves
1 generous Tablespoon olive oil
sea salt
about 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 or 3 Tablespoons whipping cream
Parmesan cheese
Place in food processor the tomatoes, red pepper, garlic and olive oil, pulse to smooth. Place in a pan and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add about 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, cream and Parmesan cheese. Do not return to heat. Allow to set a few minutes for flavors to steep.
When cooking pasta. always add plenty of salt to boiling water before adding pasta cooking only to al dente. Place drained pasta in bowl, add sauce and toss to coat. Pass the Parmesan cheese for those wishing a little more on the pasta.
