Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

  • 1 jar roasted red peppers (10 – 15 oz.)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 2 cups milk
  • salt and pepper

1. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Add peppers, garlic, and basil; cook for 10 minutes, or until flavors blend.

2. Add cream cheese, and stir until melted.  Add milk, and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Using either an immersion blender or a traditional blender, puree until desired consistency is reached. Add salt and pepper to taste, then return to a simmer for 5 more minutes.  Serve over pasta!

  1. don’t forget – it’s even better to roast your own peppers in a hot oven or over the grill

    coat with olive oil, salt and pepper, chili – turn to blacken on all sides – put in a ziplock to cool – peel and strip out the seeds

  2. and it’s even better if you put them in a paper bag rather than a ziploc….the paper bag absorbs the moisture.
