Ever roasted a red pepper? Soooooo much better than normal red peppers.
Then blend it up with some garlic and olive oil and toss with pasta – I added spinach and italian sausage.
I used this recipe for inspiration – http://livelovepasta.com/2013/02/pasta-with-roasted-red-pepper-sauce-and-sausage/
It is crazy hot in my apartment so I obviously decided to roast some red peppers. Also maybe because everything in my vegetable drawer is going bad before I can cook it. Like a red pepper!
Excellent blog name btw.
I broiled my pepper in the toaster oven for 15 minutes while the pasta cooked and sautéed my onions and sausage to avoid turning on the actual oven in this heat. Plus – faster! I also added some goat cheese after reading this similar recipe (http://www.laurenslatest.com/roasted-red-pepper-goat-cheese-alfredo/) and it made the sauce so much better and creamier. Enjoy!
