One sheet roasted red pepper pasta went viral on the internet and I had to jump on board to see if it lived up to the hype. And yes, I will be making this over and over and over again.
Prep takes less than 10 minutes and then it gets tossed in all together. I added an additional ingredient that I think is essential to really tie it in all together. Once roasted, this ingredient adds depth and flavor to the dish that takes it to another level
What is the this special ingredient?
Garlic. Cut a whole head of garlic in half and drizzle with oil. Roast it along with the tomato and once its all out, remove the skin. Mash it all together and you won’t believe how delicious it tastes.
What kind of pasta should I use? Does it matter?
Technically, you can use whatever pasta you like. However, what I learned from a world renowned pasta maker is each pasta shape is intended for a different type of dish. Saucier dishes need something to “scoop” up the sauce etc. I found that angel hair pasta is perfect for this dish because its thin enough that the pasta doesn’t take away from the sauce flavor but rather aids in facilitating it into your mouth.
Can I use other vegetables?
Sure, You can roast whatever vegetables you like along with the cheese and then toss with pasta of choice.
