Roasted Red BellPepper Pasta

Am I here after a long time? Ohh yes… Finally, I’m trying to be regular on this space :D It has been too long since I posted my 500th recipe and here I’m.. with 509th :P Have been cooking pretty much all the days but no time for plating, arranging props and clicking!!! But I promise I’ll come back with a bang…

I recently have done too many pasta dishes… And this is one of them! Got a bunch of red-green-yellow bellpeppers and wanted to make something smoky with them. Tried out this bowl :P And yes, I’m still having too many of them to experiment!!! This one is silly, simple bowl but super-yummyyyyyy :P

roasted bellpepper pasta

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup Pasta (I used spiral)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
3/4 cup Pasta Sauce (Bellpepper-Tomato based)
2 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1 Red Bellpepper
Salt, to taste
1 tsp Italian Herbs Mix
2-3 tbsp Parmesan Cheese

STEPS TO FOLLOW:

  1. Boil pasta in salted water until 90% done. Drain excess water and rinse with cold water to avoid them sticking together.
  2. Apply oil (or spray) on red bellpepper and roast it directly on flame until you find it lightly charred.
  3. Peel the skin and roughly chop them. I kept a few big chunks with charred skin too for crunchy-smoky bites.
  4. Heat olive oil in a pan and add minced garlic. Saute for a while and add pasta sauce along with seasonings.
  5. Mix everything well and cook for a min or 2.
  6. Add cooked pasta, 1 tbsp parmesan cheese and mix well.
  7. Cook for 1-2 mins and transfer to serving bowls.
  8. Sprinkle parmesan again and drizzle some olive oil before serving :)

SJ’s NOTE:

  • I personally don’t like adding onions so avoided it here.
  • Also, you can add some fresh herbs on top but my garlic-rosemary infused olive oil was overpowering so I refrained :)
