Caruso Sauce with Pasta

0 Recipe Reviews |Rate this Recipe| 5 Saves

Caruso Sauce with Pasta originated in Uruguay to honor the famous Italian tenor, Enrico Caruso. Over time, this creamy pasta sauce spread throughout South America and eventually to Europe. Enriched with cheese, ham, and mushrooms, and delicately seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, Caruso sauce is usually served over cappellini or tortellini. It tastes just as delicious served over spaghetti!
