This tomato mascarpone sauce is an easy savoury mascarpone recipe and is quick to make. A great low carb sauce served with fish, chicken or vegetables. Slather some over low carb noodles.

Mascarpone is not just for tiramisu! It makes a great savoury sauce too. The sauce is a delicious creamy sauce with the flavour of dill and tomato which always goes well together. I like the slight sharpness of the lemon to balance out the sweetness of the sauce. Taste the sauce as you make it and adjust to your own taste.

Many years ago, back when we lived in the UK we use to enjoy this mascarpone sauce with pasta. It was my quick go-to sauce when we arrived home after a hard day and needed instant comfort food. No pasta for us now, but we still enjoy this sauce with low carb noodles and fish. The Chief Taster’s favourite use of the sauce is with a Mahi Mahi recipe I bake for him.

WHAT IS MASCARPONE?

Mascarpone is an Italian cream cheese but has creamier texture like a thick double cream. It’s known as the main ingredient in tiramisu. Made from just whole cream and tartaric acid you could make it yourself.

For the tomato element of this mascarpone sauce I use tomato paste for an easy option. I’ve also made this sauce with a few spoons of marinara sauce and another batch with sun-dried tomatoes, blended in a processor. Whatever tomato you use, the most important ingredient to me is the dill. The dill really does give the sauce a great flavour and without it would just be a creamy tomato sauce.

HOW TO STORE THE SAUCE

Keep the tomato mascarpone sauce in the fridge in an air tight container and it should last about 3 to 5 days.  It’s a great sauce to have on hand to use with chicken and fish dishes or simply serve with a bowl of zucchini noodles.  Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and voila! Dinner is served!
