Simple to make yet full of complex flavours. This pasta has all the heat and a creamy sauce. Perfect quick and easy dinner recipe!
Okay seriously man. I can barely stand how good this is. It’s going to blow your mind. But not your budget. Nor your clock, because you can make this in 30 minutes or less. I’ll wait while you compose yourself. You good?
I love quick recipes. I figure I could spend all day making one dish, or I can do easy dishes and free up time for other things. More bang for your buck right. Most of us are so busy they days. Having quick recipes you can get on the table in under 30 minutes is super helpful to anyone trying to juggle too many balls in the air. Which is pretty much everyone on earth nowadays.
Totally coming clean about how completely obsessed with roasted red peppers I am. I cannot get enough of them. I keep my pantry stocked with jars of them for the winter. They are perfect for so many recipes, super versatile and absolutely delicious. I am also wildly obsessed with chipotle peppers in adobo, you can buy them in tiny little cans and just use a small amount to give kick to any dish. We have trouble finding them where we live so my daughter picks them up when she shops state-side. The joys of living so close to the border. She usually treks over at least once a month. So many cooler shopping choices over in the states.
I’m planning to have a Roasted Red Pepper Week in May. All roasted red peppers, all week long. We’ll see how many recipes with roasted red peppers I have stockpiled in my files. I think it’s quite a large number. I must have about 10 or 12 pasta recipes alone. Wait till you see what I’ve been obsessing over. I’m also going to teach you how to roast them all by our little old self. I’m a giver. So be sure to be on the lookout for Roasted Red Pepper Week next month. In the meantime make this pasta. You can thank me by sending bags of money, or chocolate, or jars of roasted red peppers. Whatever works for you!

So this was part of a fun recipe challenge called 30 Minutes or Less by Anyday Magic. I participate a few times a year in their recipe challenges since I love to support Canadian companies. They send us a gift card to cover our expenses and 3 of us go head to head each month. It’s all in good fun and we don’t take if overly seriously. We’re Canadian man, we’re a laid back bunch. It’s how we roll. The voting was last month but feel free to pop over and see who else competed in the challenge. Congrats to Isabelle of Crumb for winning this one. Kudos chickie!
I am just way too obsessed with roasted red peppers. It’s a serious addiction, one I don’t want help for. I’m seriously addicted to chipotle peppers in adobo too. I think I’ll have to plan a week long event for those too. I swear once I get on a kick I can’t stop. Expect everything to have either roasted red peppers or chipotle peppers in adobo in it, or both. I’d apologize but I don’t even feel bad.
Hope you love this one. Stay tuned for more Roasted Red Pepper recipes in May when I celebrate Roasted Red Pepper Week.
