♥ one cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

there are two different types of people in this world:
those who eat to live, and those who live to eat.
i have to admit, i am one of the latter.

to me, eating a good meal is one of life's greatest pleasures,
and there is honestly nothing i look forward to more sometimes
than my next meal! with that said, i would like to share with
you a rather delicious dish that i prepared last night

pasta with roasted red pepper sauce.

(fyi: this recipe is actually for a twisted pasta called fusili buscati lunghi,
but i just substituted spiral pasta and it came out just as well.)

2 Tbs. olive oil
3 minced garlic cloves
1 cup of jarred roasted red peppers (drained, rinsed, chopped)
1 large diced carrot ( i was out of carrots so i used a tomato)
8 oz of dry fusili buscati lunghi (or 1 box of tri colored rotini pasta)

1) heat oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. add roasted peppers, onion,
garlic and tomato. sautee 5 minutes or until onion is beginning to brown.
add 3/4 cup of water and cover it.bring down to a medium/low simmer
for 20 minutes.

2) meanwhile cook the pasta.

3) remove roasted red pepper mixture from heat and
puree in blender until smooth. season with salt & pepper.

4) drain pasta, pour red pepper sauce over it.


8 ♥ love notes.:

  1. Yum! Looking forward to trying this one :)

  2. Yum Yum, I can't wait to try this recipe. I have a similar one that uses almost the same ingredients but I also toss in capers and some white wine... and then an obscene amount of parmesan cheese as a topper!

  3. yum! those extra additions sound too good! i will have to try it out next time!

  4. sami, I will definitely try this. I subscribe to this magazine and love it! Nothing like a good pasta right?

  5. I'm completely in love with your blog (so much variety!), and I'm following now. Thanks for visiting The Well-Appointed Catwalk! Otherwise, I never would have found a glimpse of glamour. :)
