Roasted Red Pepper Pasta
Originally posted 4/23/17
Ingredients (Yield: 2 servings)
1 and 1/2 cup of medium-sized, uncooked pasta
3/4 cup of any red pasta sauce
1 red bell pepper
Spices! I used salt, pepper, basil, and garlic and onion powder
Step 0.5: Preheat your oven to 450F. Line a cookie sheet or some kind of baking pan with aluminum foil.
Step 1: Slice your red bell pepper in half and remove the seeds. Lay your pepper halves cut side down on your baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the skins are shriveled and quite brown/black.
Step 2: Cook your pasta according to package directions.
Step 3: Allow peppers to cool for a few minutes, then carefully peel the skins off of your peppers. If you roasted your peppers for long enough, the skins should be sort of paper-y and come off easily.
Step 4: Blend roasted red peppers and your pasta sauce in a blender until smooth.
Step 5: Place your blended sauce into a pan and heat until just bubbling. Add spices to taste.
Step 6: Pour the sauce over your cooked pasta and serve hot!
