Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

I have been craving pasta but did know exactly what I wanted. The usual spaghetti, lasagna etc didn't appeal to me so I ventured out and tried something I have never made before. I took at recipe from and tweaked it to be what I felt I wanted. Steve is allergic to onions and garlic and I wanted something he could eat. By the way it's hard to make an Italian dish without onions or garlic. So here is what I did and I LOVED IT! Now for Steve his words were, "I like it but I can tell not as well as you." Uggg

I paired this with a chicken breast and it was a meal.

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup heavy cream

Add first seven ingredients to a sauce pan. Bring to boil and continue to boil 5 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates. Remove from heat; stir in whipping cream and butter. Reduce heat and simmer 5 more minutes.
