Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

This Roasted Red Pepper Sauce is simple to put together with roasted jarred red pepper strips! A rich and bright sauce that will liven up your pasta!


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 16 oz jar roasted red pepper strips, drained
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  • Heat olive in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 3 to 5 minutes or until the onion is transparent. It is fine if the onions brown just a little, for it will add flavor. Add the minced garlic, and saute for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add the drained roasted red pepper strips, vegetable broth, salt, and pepper. Cook until heated through. 
  • Remove from heat. Using an immersion blender right in the pot, blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can transfer the mixture in batches to a blender & blend until smooth. Either way, be careful with the hot mixture.
  • Return the mixture back over to medium heat. Add the butter and cream. Stir until melted and heated through. Add additional salt & pepper if desired. Remove from heat.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta!
