Pesto And Tomato Pasta

No time to cook tonight? This only takes as long as it takes to cook the pasta!

A jar of pesto sauce
A few tablespoons of crème fraîche or half and half or ricotta cheese (optional)
Three fresh tomatoes
A package of pasta
Pepper, freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Dice the tomatoes. Heat the pesto sauce in a saucepan, add the diced tomatoes, cream or cheese and heat for about five minutes. When the pasta is al dente, drain it and serve the pasta topped with the sauce, freshly ground pepper and Parmesan cheese.
