Easy, Creamy 3-Ingredient Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

IMG_6187.jpg

I love red peppers. Raw or roasted. So this is such a great way to change it up and turn them into sauce. You can roast your own peppers or you can use jarred. Either way, you can make this sauce in less time time it takes to cook pasta.

This will probably make more sauce than you need but you can keep it in the refrigerator or freezer and use it when you are in the mood!

3 roasted red and/or orange peppers
1 clove of garlic
1/4 cup raw cashews + 1 cup filtered water
Salt, to taste

Get the pasta going.

Add cashews and water to the Vitamix and blend until smooth. Add the roasted red peppers and some of their liquid to the Vitamix, along with the garlic. Blend again until smooth.

Add the sauce to a small pot and heat through. This will also cook the garlic a little bit and take the raw garlic edge off. This is optional if you want it more garlicky!

To serve with pasta, cook the pasta according to the package. Drain and mix with as much sauce as you like! Top with a sprinkle of fresh chives or parsley or whatever you like. Enjoy!
