Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Sausage

Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and Sausage recipe pictures

When Kara first suggested we make a red pepper pasta sauce I envisioned a tomato sauce with red pepper flakes. Sometimes I just don’t think out of the box. Like at all. I actually like red peppers but a red sauce without tomatoes? Say what?!?

I decided to go with the flow, because let’s face it…Kara has better judgment than I do. Lo and behold this was one of the best pastas I’ve ever had. So good that I had a helping for breakfast the next morning. So good that I added it to my list of top 5 favorite pasta sauces. Now that’s HUGE statement.

The sauce was mildly sweet but paired with the savory sausage and the onions and cheese…it was just pure deliciousness.
