Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce


I am taking my mom to the airport today. It has been a really fun week.

I am easily influenced by other peoples blogs, pictures, and suggestions when it comes to trying different recipes.

A couple weeks ago, Tracey sent out a tweet about this pasta from The Pioneer Woman, so I went to her blog to look at the recipe.
Her gorgeous photos and the fact that this pasta had to do with roasted red peppers, which I love, helped me decide to make this for dinner that night.

I had everything on hand, so it really didn't take long at all.
I used whole wheat pasta because that is what I always use.
I roasted my peppers in the oven, since I don't have a gas stovetop.
I also omitted most of the heavy cream at the end and just splashed in a couple Tbls of half and half instead.
Delicious!

This pasta looks so fresh and delicious! I love how you've lightened up the recipe but kept the main flavors going.

That looks positively scrumptious. How nice that you've had your mom there.

I've made that and loved it! More importantly all my kids and my husband loved it too!

I am a sucker for anything with roasted peppers so this is a must-try for me. Good idea with using the half and half. I will be doing that as well.

I love roasted red peppers (and pasta, of course). I definitely have to give this a try!

It sounds delicious! I actually think I am out of pasta. Can you believe that? Who is ever out of pasta? :P

I'm crazy about roasted peppers too but would probably have been bad and used all the (real)cream! I do love whole wheat pasta though- so I always have that.

I'm glad you had a nice time with your Mom! I'm coming to the States in December to spend 10 days with my Mom and I can't wait! The pasta looks absolutely delicious- even at 7 a.m. in the morning!
