Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

The love I have for roasted red peppers is borderline unhealthy.

I got my husband addicted to them with one bite of my Roasted Red Pepper Dip that I created over 5 years ago! {Holy moly…I’ve been blogging a looooong time!} My Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo is also pretty spectacular incase you were wondering.

But anyways, roasted red peppers are amazing and I love them *almost* more than my children when they don’t sleep through the night.

{Just kidding, Mom.}

So the other day when I made this dinner, my husband and I were actually headed out for a date night and we had our wonderful babysitter, Andrea, come over to watch the kiddos. I made this for their dinner and almost didn’t want to leave! Gord and I had our few forkfuls of this pasta and left a good amount for the kids in the fridge…little did we know our babysitter was a closet roasted red pepper lover and finished most of the remaining pasta!

When we got home and took a peek into the fridge, I was a little bummed, a little jealous, but mostly super impressed! If I was a teenager, I’d happily eat my body weight in pasta and laugh in the face of my scale. But alas, that time has come and gone and sadly, my belly is still jelly from this little guy and things are just generally saggy.

Don’t get me wrong, I happily enjoy pasta as much as the next person, just not an entire box anymore.

Not that I couldn’t, I just shouldn’t.

So glad we had that talk.

Anyways.

This pasta recipe is amazing and I will probably be making it again by Friday. The addiction is real, folks.

So, happy hump day! I think its time you treated yourself to a *leetle* pasta. You won’t regret it. Promise!!

Printable recipe below. Enjoy, friends! xoxo

    This looks wonderful and I will be making very soon. May ask, what is “1ln. pasta ” ?
    Is it a typo and you meant 1 LB? Whatever, I can figure it out. I am new to your site and am loving what I see. Thanks so much for reasonably priced and easy recipes. Great for the Home Cook.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. Pasta is one of my favorites. I think I will add some grilled chicken to it!

    To all of you wondering about the 1 In, I too wondered and decided to look back at her narrative to see if there was a clue in there. And lo and behold, she said she can’t eat a whole box of pasta. So I’m taking that to mean one pound. Just sayin’.

    We LOVE this recipe. My husband and my picky 18 month old devour it when we make it! Even the girl at daycare told me “Whatever you sent for lunch today for your son smelled so so good!” Thanks for the recipe!

    This sounds delicious! Just wondering if it’s possible to substitute the heavy cream for something else to make it more healthy?
