Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Recipe is a flavorful vegetarian pasta dish mixing healthy veggies with roasted red peppers and creamy buffalo mozzarella.
Hello there and happy Monday!
I hope you had a fabulous weekend. The weather in Chicago was beautiful and we spent much needed time outside. Oh how I missed vitamin D. We also spent a lot of our weekend packing up for our trip to Europe! I can’t believe it is here. I have mixed feelings–obviously very excited to go but sad to leave my little one behind. I know he is in good hands though! 🙂
Roasted Red Pepper Pasta
Now on to something I will be eating a lot of in Italy. Pasta. Oh, pasta….how I love you so. I could eat you every day if I knew you wouldn’t add 15 lbs. to my waist.
But eating it once a week is a good balance right? It is in my house. Pasta dishes are a good option for a busy day because of the simplicity of many pasta dishes.
The first time I made this dish I actually roasted the red peppers myself, which I highly recommend if you have the time. Then the second time I was exhausted and wanted to make this recipe even easier so I bought roasted red peppers in the jar. Either way works great, but I do have to say I slightly prefer the flavor of roasting the peppers yourself.
If you are looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal that the whole family will love (I sound like a commercial!) this Roasted Red Pepper Pasta recipe is for you. You have the freedom to add healthy things like veggies, and sometimes your husband and son won’t even notice. 😉
