Creamy pasta loaded with tomato and cheese flavors. No cream is used in the recipe. Milk and cheese give the creaminess to the pasta.

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 ounces mini mozzarella balls
  • A few fresh basil leaves
  • A few fresh mint leaves
