Creamy Tomato~Spinach Sauce

Here is a quick and easy sauce to serve over pasta!,,,,Adding cream cheese to this sauce gives it a creamy texture, I added frozen spinach (thawed) to this but it can be left out if you are not a fan of it. Actually you could add what you like, I think peas would be great in here also!,,,Here is what I did...Enjoy!

2 T olive oil
1 Medium onion (diced)
1 clove garlic (minced)
2 T tomato paste
2 15 oz cans petite diced tomatoes + 1 can water
1 Cup frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed)
1/2 t dried oregano
1/2 t dry basil
1 T sugar
pinch crushed red pepper
salt and pepper
1/4 Cup grated parmesan
2 oz cream cheese (cubed)
saute onion in olive oil until translucent
add tomato paste and garlic,,,then the tomatoes and water
stir,,,then add spinach and spices
whisk in parmesan then the cream cheese until melted
simmer until thickened and heated through
Serve over your favorite pasta!
We served ours over my husbands home made fettuccini!
