Sometimes when I am planning our dinners for the week I get to the end and have to completely start over because I realize that pasta is in every meal I was planning.

This night, I omitted the pasta, added some cream and came up with this.

    This sounds like a delicious meal. I have lots of cherry tomatoes from my garden that would be perfect in this recipe.
