Creamy Manchego Rose Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta

I love pasta.  Not just a little, but, really, really, really love pasta.  I could eat it everyday.  With meat, without meat, tomato sauce, cream sauce or both sauce (rose)! Creamy Manchego Rose Sauce over Angel Hair Pasta which combines both tomato and cream to make this gorgeous rose sauce is one of my favorites.  Whenever I ask my daughter what she would like for dinner, she almost always says "Ooh, Mom, can you make one of your creamy, tomatoey pasta dishes?"  This one is super easy and I normally have everything in my pantry so this means I don't have to make a special trip to the grocery store.  For me, this dish is the ultimate in comfort food.  I have never had a dish with cheese, tomatoes, cream and pasta that I didn't love.
