I have two 16-month-old twins running around the house which means I will take any and every short cut I can get, as long as flavor and quality aren’t compromised! These Tillamook Sauce Starter kits are basically heaven sent because they come together in just a few minutes, and you can modify them in a million different ways. The sauce was ready before the linguini so dinner was ready in a flash, and there was no powdered or processed cheese in sight!

In this recipe, I just added some roasted tomatoes with garlic that I got from the deli section at my local supermarket, some fresh basil from the garden, and a sprinkling of cheese. Click here to find out where to buy these Tillamook Sauce Starters.
How delicious does this look??? It tasted a million times better than those jarred sauces!

- Stir this gently over medium heat until the cheese melts.
- Once the sauce bubbles, reduce the heat and cook for 1 additional minute. Make sure you stir it often until it’s smooth.
- When done, pour the sauce in with the cooked pasta and give it a good mix.
- Now add in the sun-dried tomatoes. You could also use roasted tomatoes with garlic if you please. Top if off with some fresh basil and enjoy!
