Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

pound favorite pasta, cooked al dente
28 oz crushed tomatoes
15 oz tomato sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp salt
8 fresh basil leaves
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fresh arugula (optional)
1 cup fresh tomatoes (optional)

In a large, saucepan, stir together crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, olive oil, basil, and salt. Bring tomato sauce to a rapid simmer and reduce to low heat. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring often. If sauce isn’t thick enough for your liking, allow to cook for another 5 minutes. While the sauce is simmering prepare your pasta! Once the sauce is thickened add in cream and cheese and stir until combined. Add in cooked pasta and stir over medium/low heat until pasta is completely coated in sauce. Serve topped with fresh arugula, cherry tomatoes, and more shaved cheese. Red pepper also makes a great addition.
