Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Dear Pioneer Woman,
Thank you for sharing your talents with with the rest of us! You are truly amazing!!
I wish I were as talented as you are.

Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
adapted from pioneer woman

3 whole red bell peppers
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cups heavy cream
flat leaf parsley, mined
Parmesan, shaved or grated
1 lb penne pasta

Roast red peppers under the broiler until charred. Once charred, place in a Ziploc bag to sweat. Peel charred skin from the peppers, then remove seeds. Puree peppers in blender until sauce forms.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a skillet or pot over medium heat, drizzle in olive oil. Add diced onions and garlic and cook until soft. Pour in pepper puree and stir together. Add salt to taste.
Pour in cream and stir to combine. Add cooked pasta, then stir again to combine. Place pasta in a bowl and top with chopped parsley and cheese. OH SO GOOD!!!!

  1. have you seen her cookbook yet? jer gave it to me for good! lots of fun stuff to read in it too, she's so funny.
    had her chicken pot pie the other day & made her cinnamon rolls last week..super yummy & now i feel super fat! :)
    thanks for this one, i'm gonna try it. is it too hot for kids?

  2. Adam and Tessa ate it-it isn't hot at all. I just got her cookbook and asked Eric afterwards if I was weird cause I read cookbooks like they are novels. I have tried a few things-can't wait to try more.
