15-Minute Meal: Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo

Sometimes meals are planned and food is prepped…other times winging it is the key. I always have certain ingredients in my kitchen, at least one jar of roasted red peppers is definitely one of those ingredients. One of my favorite ways to use roasted red peppers is pureed in sauces. This particular recipe is a not only a family favorite, it takes 15 minutes to make…start to finish.

The sauce is another one of my quick sauces made in the blender. I like to make it when the pasta is cooking. When the most time consuming step in a recipe is waiting for the water to boil and then cook the pasta, it’s a winner in my book.
