Creamy, orangish, velvety, luxurious tomato cream sauce. 

But, without any cream! 

Don’t get me wrong, I truly love creamy pastas like Instant Pot Chicken Fettucino Alfredo <– Perfect date night pasta. 

And this cream loaded 😊 Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Soup

I’d love to serve healthier, lighter version on weeknights. 

The secret? 

Drum roll, please…..coconut milk!! 

Sounds weird? Trust me, no one will ever know. 

Here are the team players 

  • Penne or any shape that is similar in size so that it’ll be perfectly cooked at the given time. 
  • Store bought marinara sauce 
  • No-cream <—- coconut milk 
  • And the usual suspects – butter, onion, garlic, parmesan, fresh basil, salt and pepper.
