Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

Seriously this creamy deliciousness is next level!!! I’m obsessed with how cozy this bowl is. It’s perfect any time of year and there are so many ways to add to it if you want! A few suggestions being adding spinach, broccoli or peas for some veggies and chicken sausage for some protein. It’s a sauce that quickly became one of my sauces on rotation around here. I love using my food processor to make all of these sauces at home! One of my go-to kitchen items!

I had shared this recipe a year or so ago in my meal plan e-book! I had kind of forgotten about the recipes that I shared over in that e-book and I think it’s time to bring some of them back! Including this one 🙂 If you’d like the e-book just send me an email and I will send it to you!

Anyway, cozy up and make this pasta! You’ll love it!

  • Red bell pepper
  • Raw cashews
