Fusilli Pasta in Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce | Pasta Recipes

Pasta for breakfast is a welcoming change these days. Each month I buy  a small pack of a variety of pasta to try new recipes to post here.This pasta with roasted red bell pepper sauce is one easy flavourful recipe which needs no pasta sauce (as requested by few readers).And pasta recipes are always requested by friends and readers so I am getting to experiment more...But my fav is the baked version with white sauce which I posted sometime back. I referred 2-3 recipes from foodgawker and modified them to our taste.

My Notes:
  • You can use 1/4 cup vegetable stock too instead of water while making the sauce.
  • You can try this recipe with any type of pasta. I had fusilli in hand so used it up here.
  • While grinding the bellpepper and tomatoes you can add 1/2 a tsp of olive oil. Also add cashews for a  more richer sauce.
