I don’t think it is a secret that I love pasta, I could probably eat it every meal of the day and for a snack too. I am always looking for new sauces, new ways to incorporate vegetables and other delicious ingredients and today I got to use fresh basil from my balcony garden and that always makes me happy. This sauce takes about 30 seconds to make, no really, less than a minute! Get ready to make your family happy.
Roasted Red Pepper Pasta: Serves 4
1TB Olive Oil
1/4C Cream Cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
1/4C Parmesan Cheese – Shredded
1/2C Roasted Red Peppers (I used Jarred – in water)
1/2C Fresh Basil Leaves
Salt & Pepper
Place a large pot of salted water on the stove and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook to al dente. Place the remaining ingredients in a blender (I added the salt after I had blended it as the cheese is salty) and blend until smooth. Pour the sauce over the finished pasta, serve and enjoy!
