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!
