This Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta is tasty, adaptable, and takes less than 30 minutes to make.

It’s once of those dishes where the sauce takes as long to make as the pasta takes to cook!

It’s also ridiculously creamy, and just my kinda pasta dish. When we had our restaurant, we’d make this often for our staff dinner.

It’s one of those dishes that you don’t mind cooking at the end of a long day, as it’s SO quick to make.

Trust me! The last thing you want to do after cooking food for 100 people is to cook some more. Ugh.

We’d usually make this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta with smoked salmon, but you can use chicken, fresh salmon, tuna, or just veggies if you like.

What do I need to make this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta?

You don’t need much to make this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta!

Pretty much all you need is cream cheese, pasta, tomatoes and the meat of your choice!

We like to use Philadelphia Lightest, as it counts as your Healthy Extra A or you get loads of it for very few Syns and more importantly, it doesn’t split when heated.

You could use Quark in this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta if you like, but it will probably split.

Pasta wise – you can use which ever dried pasta you like! We used the Gigli shape for this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta, as sometimes I fancy a change from Fussili or Penne.

You could use this Trottole pasta from Morrisons!

Like I said above, we used salmon to make this, but you can use chicken! Just use which ever stock pot & stock cube to match your meat.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Creamy Tomato Pasta recipe!

  1. Hello- this looks perfect for tea tonight! What size carton of passata, do you need to use? Thank you for such a brilliant website, you inspire me to make really filling slimming world meals everyday and keep me on track. Andrea

  2. Hubby made this tonight….really watery! Followed it to the letter. What do we do to make it thicker? Oh, method mentions celery but not in ingredients list…

    1. Hi Claire
      The celery has been added to the ingredients list – sorry for the omission.
      Make sure that you only use 150 mls of water to dissolve the stock. When you reach step 8 in the method, you can simmer for a few more minutes to thicken up the sauce before you add the pasta in step 9. Hope that helps.

  3. Amazing meal! I’ve only just become a SW member and my partner absolutely loved this meal tonight. I forgot the broccoli so used some from a microwave pack that I had in the fridge 😀. I will defiantly try this with chicken next time. I added sweetcorn on the side and a cheeky bit of garlic bread.
    Im having the hunters chicken tomorrow night and the bannana and peanut butter cakes making with daughter tomorrow day. Thanks for an amazing site 👍🏻💗
