Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe pictures

Not too long ago, we made this roasted red pepper sauce and served it with pasta. I was shocked by how much I liked a sauce made from roasted red pepper rather than tomato. Who knew? Because of my new found appreciation for roasted red peppers we thought…what else can we make with them?!

On Sunday we went over to my parents for a causal grilling afternoon. Our aunt, uncle and cousin came over for dinner and visited the baby. Kara and I were in charge of an appetizer and a dessert. We decided on this Roasted Red Pepper Dip. It was a cinch to make and everybody really enjoyed the goat cheese/roasted red pepper combo!

BTW…does everybody notice the cute doxie plate? #swoon!!
