Easy Sweet Pepper Pasta Sauce Recipe

red pepper sauce

I haven't posted a recipe in quite some time so I thought that I would share one of our favorite quick and easy pasta sauces that just takes minutes to make and is super yummy :)

You will need one large sweet onion such as a walla walla and one red or orange sweet bell pepper. Chop them up into large chunks and toss them into a sauté pan and cook for about 5-8 minutes until the onions start to get slightly translucent and soft.

Next toss your onions & peppers into your blender along with half a tomato and pureé. We like some spice to our sauce so for a little zip you can add 1/2 a tablespoon of chili spice and a few dashes of garlic tabasco sauce and give it a quick whiz in the blender. Don't worry though if you don't like it hot, this sauce is delicious just on its own to. I actually never add any salt to it as I think the natural flavors of the vegetables are so sweet on their own that it doesn't need it but feel free to salt it to your liking if needed :)

It's great on pasta topped with a little bit of cheese and it also doubles as a great sauce for homemade burritos to!

Enjoy :)
