This sauce encompasses bright and bold flavors, a little creamy, slightly spicy, pinch of herb, and fresh roasted red peppers! 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!
