Creamy and Spicy Sauce- Perfect for Gnocchi, Polenta, or Pasta
Gnocchi are the perfect pillow for soaking up a delicious sauce. This sauce encompasses big and bold flavors, a little creamy, slightly spicy, pinch of herb, and fresh roasted red peppers! To make this sauce stand out in all the right ways I use Amore Brand Sun-Dried Tomato Paste, Red Chili Pepper Paste and Ready-to-Eat Grilled Peppers. Amore Brand ready-to-eat vegetables blend sun-dried Tuscan tomatoes that gives this sauce a “fresh from the garden” flair.
Italian cooking spans in range from sweet to savory to spicy. Some of the best loved Italian dishes add a bit of heat with spices. Amore’s spicy blend of Chili Pepper Paste is made with chili peppers grown in Puglia, along with olive oil and salt. It's a pure chili taste that adds the kick you need for that warm and spicy flavor. The Ready-to-Eat Grilled Peppers are herb infused and colorful, with a mix of red and yellow they add a bright pop of color to the sauce. I love using Amore products to make this sauce taste special and authentic.
Easy Weeknight Meal
All you need to add is a a little cream, Parmigiano, fresh basil and this sauce comes together in under 10 minutes! You can use this sauce with any dry pasta, my polenta recipe, or follow my easy directions for the softest gnocchi and your night is complete with a warm and comforting meal. A little love goes a long way with tasty and fresh ingredients. Enjoy with friends and family for an easy weeknight meal!
