I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Sue's Pasta with Tomatoes and Mascarpone

My friend Sue makes this all the time and it’s so crazy good and easy. She doesn’t watch my show, but that’s ok. A guy can’t have everything, right? Mascarpone is essentially a triple pasteurized cream cheese - but adds a silkiness like nothing else...


  • 1 pound pasta - your choice
  • 1 - 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • fresh basil


  1. Bring large pot of water to a boil, and add pasta - it’s all down hill from here
  2. Saute onion in olive oil and garlic until tender - about 5 minutes
  3. Add tomatoes from can (reserve juice) & squish in pan with back of spoon - mix well & heat through
  4. Add mascarpone and stir until all is thick, silky and creamy
  5. Drain pasta, add sauce and put in pasta bowls
  6. Top with freshly chopped basil
