Today, we’re diving into a dish that’s all about simple goodness: Roasted Pepper & Tomato Sauce Pasta. Picture this: tender pasta coated in a sauce that’s a fusion of roasted peppers and tomatoes. Let’s roll up our sleeves and explore the steps to create this satisfying dish.

Let’s Break it Down

1. Roasting with Ease: Preheat your oven to 400°F. Gather some cherry tomatoes, red bell pepper (diced), chopped onion, garlic (3 cloves or to your liking), dried oregano, a pinch of salt, pepper, or chili flakes if desired. Drizzle olive oil over the mix and roast for 20-25 minutes until softened and slightly caramelized.

2. Blending the Sauce: Once the roasted ingredients have cooled slightly, blend them with fresh basil, vegan ricotta or cream cheese, vegan parmesan, and a touch of olive oil. Blend until a smooth consistency is achieved.

3. Cooking the Pasta: Boil your pasta in salted water until it’s cooked to your preferred texture. Before draining, reserve about a cup of pasta water—this comes in handy later.

4. Combining and Warming: Heat the creamy sauce in a pan over medium heat. Add the cooked pasta along with a splash of the saved pasta water. Stir to coat the pasta evenly with the sauce.
