2red bell peppers
1/2cup+ 2 tbsp water
1/2cuppine nuts OR cashews
1tbspminced fresh garlic
Fresh basil 1/4 cup, chopped
12ozgluten-free brown rice spiral pasta, or pasta of choice
Preheat an oven to 450 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Place the whole bell peppers on the pan and roast for 20-25 minutes until well browned.
Carefully slice the bell peppers and remove the stem and seeds and add to a blender.
Add all of the remaining ingredients (except the basil) and blend until smooth. Taste and add any additional salt or spices, if desired.
Garnish with fresh chopped basil and pine nuts. Serve over spiral pasta. I much prefer the spiral pasta over spaghetti noodles for this sauce because it gets in between the grooves and has a better texture.
Nutrition is based off of using all the 12 ounces of pasta and all the sauce divided between 4 servings, which is a lot. You may not use all of it for exactly 4 servings, or maybe 6.
