Ingredients in this Red Pepper Pasta
This roasted red pepper pasta is easier to make than you think and uses really simple and nourishing ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
for the sauce: First you will roast the red peppers, sweet onion, and garlic with a bit of EVOO in the oven for about 30-40 minutes. Then, you will add the roasted ingredients into a blender with vegetable broth, coconut cream and a few seasonings like oregano, dried basil and salt + pepper.
pasta: for this recipe I used medium shells, which I think holds the sauce really nicely. However, feel free to use your favorite noodle shape.
toppings: before this pasta dish is ready to be served, it’ll be topped with fresh basil and a touch of parmesan cheese.
Can I make it vegan?
Absolutely! This recipe calls for a small amount of parmesan cheese which is the only ingredients holding this recipe back from being 100% vegan. Feel free to use vegan parmesan cheese, nutritional yeast, or just omit it all together.
