Pasta with Tomato, Basil and Mushroom Alfredo Sauce Recipe

Some of my favorite meals are meatless. They are a huge money saver plus they are generally quicker to prepare, making them great weeknight meals. If you've been following me for awhile, you know that I am a huge pasta lover, and I love to try new pasta recipes. 

This recipe is delicious!! The addition of tomatoes, mushrooms and basil spruce up the jarred alfredo sauce, which takes it to another level. It makes it taste more like homemade. This would also be great served over ravioli or tortellini if you don't want to use regular pasta. Enjoy!!

Pasta with Tomato, Basil and Mushroom Alfredo Sauce (print recipe)

What you need:
1- 16 ounce box of pasta, cooked according to package directions
olive oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1- 8 ounce container white mushrooms, sliced
1- 15 ounce jar alfredo sauce
3 tablespoons white wine or chicken broth
2 cups fresh tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
shaved or shredded parmesan cheese
pepper (if desired)

Drizzle some olive oil in a large skillet, and saute onion, garlic and mushrooms over medium heat until onion is tender. Add alfredo sauce, pour wine or broth into alfredo jar, cover, shake well, and add to the skillet. Add tomatoes, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until heated through. Stir in basil and remove from heat. Top with parmesan cheese!!
