A simple, homemade roasted red pepper and tomato pasta sauce. Full of fresh ingredients and full flavours, this is a great lunch to make the night before and pack for work!
I don’t know whether it’s because the end of summer is coming, or because I just love pasta so much, but in the last few days I’ve been craving pasta SO much. I may have eaten it twice yesterday… oops.
Anyway. I get a bit bored of store bought pasta sauces. I mean they are great and so super easy to have on hand, but where I live, we are limited on choices, you pretty much have tomato, or tomato and basil.
Making your own pasta sauce is SO easy, and this roasted red pepper and tomato sauce is super thick and rich. It clings onto the pasta beautifully, which is exactly what you want from a pasta sauce. You could throw in whatever kinds of vegetables or beans you fancy to make this dish your own as well, think of this sauce as a starting point!
Most of the work is hands off, you just roughly chop the pepper, tomato and onion, throw it in the oven to get all soft and caramelised then blend. It’s so easy, you’ll wonder why you never made homemade pasta sauce before!
