Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Recipe with step by step pictures. Delicious pasta dish with roasted pepper sauce which makes it super yum.
I crave for pasta very often. The cool thing about pasta is whatever you add is completely absorbed by those starchy pasta and makes it flavourful. Specially I love Penne Pasta because the hollowness in this pasta scoops up more sauce and each mouthful will just explode as you take a bite. I tried a different sauce apart from the normal tomato sauce.
I char grilled red bell peppers and used that as my base, there is something in the smokiness of the pepper which gives a nice flavour to the sauce. Added some cashews to give an extra texture and it makes the sauce creamy. Added some roasted cumin powder and chilli flakes to a little kick and lift. The whole different flavours gets combined when it hits the hot pasta and makes it yum.
