Pasta for breakfast is a welcoming change these days. Each month I buy a small pack of a variety of pasta to try new recipes to post here.This pasta with roasted red bell pepper sauce is one easy flavourful recipe which needs no pasta sauce (as requested by few readers).And pasta recipes
are always requested by friends and readers so I am getting to experiment more...But my fav is the baked version with white sauce
which I posted sometime back. I referred 2-3 recipes from foodgawker and modified them to our taste.
Fusilli Pasta with red bellpepper sauce Recipe - Ingredients
Cooking & PreparationTime: 25 mins
Pasta - 1/2 cup
Tomato -1 chopped roughly
Garlic - 3 pods halved
Red BellPepper(Capsicum) - 1/2 medium sized
Chilli flakes - 1 tsp
Italian Seasoning / Black Pepper - a pinch
Olive oil - 2 tsp
Cheese - just for garnish(I used mozarella)
Salt - to taste
1.Boil water and add pasta along with salt and a tsp of oil. Cook pasta till soft yet crunchy enough to bite.Drain water and keep aside. In a pan add little oil and add tomato, garlic and saute till mushy and switch off.
2.Then roast the bellpepper directly in flame till black spots appear on all sides. Peel of the outer skin as shown. 3.Then add it along with sauted tomato garlic and grind it to a fine paste. Add this paste to the pan, add 1/4 water and allow it to boil for 3-5mins. Add chilli flakes,salt and italian seasoning.
4..Once it reaches a sauce consistency, add the cooked pasta and give a quick stir without breaking the pasta. Switch off.While serving garnish with grated cheese and serve hot.
The pasta tastes great by itself but with grated cheese takes to a whole new level so dont miss it :)
- You can use 1/4 cup vegetable stock too instead of water while making the sauce.
- You can try this recipe with any type of pasta. I had fusilli in hand so used it up here.
- While grinding the bellpepper and tomatoes you can add 1/2 a tsp of olive oil. Also add cashews for a more richer sauce.
