This Roasted Red Pepper Pasta is delicious and adds a touch of sophistication to your chef reputation. Now people will think you can actually cook well. Talk about fooling someone… am I right? Either way, roasting the red peppers is the only labor involved in this dish and you can always just buy some jarred ones instead. Add a few other things, cook some pasta (any will work) and you are all set and ready to impress those idiots.




  • 1 Roasted Red Pepper (this will feed 2-3 people so double for more). Can also use jarred roasted red peppers.
  • 12oz Pasta
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 small diced White Onion, diced
  • 2 small minced cloves of Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika

  2. Melt butter in pan and cook onions and garlic.
  3. Place in a blender with your roasted red peppers. Pulse to a smooth consistency.
  4. Pour back into the pan and keep on a simmer. Add in cream and stir until completely blended, then add your parmesan, parsley, smoked paprika and seasoning to taste.
  5. Cook your pasta in salted boiling water and cook until al dente.
  6. Drain pasta and toss through your sauce until completely coated. Serve with extra parmesan and parsley. Make sure to have a crusty bread as well.
