kup of roasted red pepper pasta

just roll out the red carpet…ladies and gents i give you…………………..roasted red pepper pasta!

and no, i havent made this twice in the last week either. so dont even think i did 😉

i guess i should start off by saying happy tuesday, im glad youre here blah blah blah. well, its been a long ass time since i have posted about a recipe and i have to say, i got a little help from the internet on this one. BUT that doesnt mean i cant post about it or tell you how to make it!

so let get into the pasta, okay? OKAY!

there is what youll need:

  • a 12oz box of pasta, i use banza
  • 1 tbsp. of mince garlic, i use my gallon sized jar from costco. otherwise you can use 2 cloves
  • 3 shallots, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. of butter
  • 1 cup of half and half
  • 4oz of cream cheese, make sure its somewhat of a room temp. because cold cream cheese is the devil. also cube it, makes it so much easier to mix
  • 1/2ish cups of parmesan cheese, mozzarella could be used too.
  • 12oz jar of roasted red pepper in water, i made sure to rinse mine before using.
  • optional: parmesan cheese and basil or parsley for garnish

instructions:

  1. boil your noodles according to the packaging. i also over cook my banza noodle because they dont take very long and i normally doing other things and forget abut them BUT COOK YOUR NOODLES.
  2. while youre over cooking your noodles, slice your shallots and garlic. now you dont need to make things small because everything will be put into a blender at the end.
  3. once sliced, start to melt your butter over medium heat. add the shallots until translucent, only a few minutes here.
  4. then add your garlic for about a minute. you do not want to over cook garlic because itll get bitter and nasty.
  5. add your half and half, cubed cream cheese and your parm or motz cheese, whatever youd like. i did parm. keep stiring until cheese is melted and everything is well mixed. add your red peppers to warm them up a bit, ive give them around 3 minutes.
  6. carefully pour your sauce into a food processor or blender, i used this blender. and puree until fully mixed.
  7. fill your bowl with pasta & top with your sauce. add whatever youd like on top. i did cheese because, duh #wisconsin.

okay, i did make this twice in less than a week because it was that good! i hope you make it and love it just as much as i did/do!

let me know if you make it!
