Roasted capsicum pasta sauce

Something different and veggie healthy to put on your pasta, is this simple sauce. Easy to make, when you get over peeling the skins, with all the flavour and goodness intact. 




Roasted capsicum pasta sauce
6 red capsicums
1/2 cup cream
salt and pepper

Roast the whole capsicums in a 200C oven for 20 minutes, until the skins start to brown and blister.

Let them cool a bit, remove skins, stalk and seeds.

Puree the capsicums, then place in a pan with the cream and cook for about  four minutes. Season with salt and pepper and toss through cooked pasta.

Feel free to add some parmesan to the sauce.

Try browning some cubed chicken in the pan before adding the puree and cream.

    1. The tedious bit is taking the skin off the capsicum. It comes off fairly easily though.

    1. My fussy eater won't eat any cooked veggie except corn cobs. I have to hide it extremely well!

  5. Looks great, but capsicums are the ONLY thing I will not eat. Though the fact that they are pureed might make it more edible to me. My kids like capsicums, so maybe I should try it.

    1. It's nice just to cook up something for myself for lunch. I have been making an effort to have something healthy and sitting down to enjoy it. It's much better than getting cravings around three pm and binging on biscuits!

    1. It would be awesome with chicken and cheese. I'm not mixing proteins with carbs at the moment, so I probably would have done that!
