Super quick and easy to make pasta. It’s meatless so it’s perfect for a Meatless Monday or just any day you want to cut out the meat. It’s made with roasted red peppers and lots of garlic. This recipe is perfect for a fast and tasty weeknight supper. Sure to be a hit with kids and adults.
There are days where I spend a ton of time on pinterest pinning things like cute kitties, cute doggies, pretty horses, clothing, and various DIY inspiration pins. Then there are days when I pin so much yummy food I think I won’t ever be able to look at food again. Then there are days I stumble on a pin like The Pioneer Woman’s Quick and Easy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta, and somehow I’m magically hungry again.
For some unknown reason I then let the pin sit there for eons, collecting pin dust, as all pins do. Until one day I wake up, meander over to pinterest without even brushing my hair (oh quit scoffing, you know YOU do it too), and I see the dreamy pasta again. That day I take it as a sign from the food gods that I am supposed to make this pasta. Or I was just hungry and trying to come with excuses to cook. Never one to miss an opportunity to follow a sign, I decide to sashay my way into the kitchen and have at this stuff. And have at it I did.

I know right! That PW knows her stuff. Every recipe I’ve tried of hers has been an epic success. Not always the case with some cookbook authors, but her recipes are super reliable. I’ve never had one of hers fail.
I promise I’ll share my other version of this next week. I had a ton of fun playing around with this recipe. It’s a great base recipe to jump off from if you’re not an experienced cook. It can be changed up by adding other veggies very easily. So experiment with it. You can’t go wrong when you make a recipe to suit your own tastes. Be fearless, it’s a good thing.
