Roasted Red Bellpepper Spaghetti

Red Bellpeppers have a sweet, almost fruity taste and you can prepare many dishes out of this fantastic vitamin C rich vegetable. Usually i'll add these red bellpeppers in most of the salads, i'll make soups with it or in pizzas, apart from it i'll rarely cook them with pastas or rice. Finally few days back i prepared some oven roasted bellpeppers just by broiling them in preheated oven for few minutes. While they were hot, i packed them in a ziplock bag, so that the skin can be peeled easily. This is how i prepared the oven roasted red bellpepper.

Pastas are my kid's favourite, they can have pasta from breakfast to dinner, obviously i'll cook twice a week pastas at home. Today's dish goes for a simple roasted bellpepper sauce prepared with oven roasted red bellpepper along with onions, garlic and cream with usual spices. This spaghetti is one of the easiest and very quick dish you can prepared for your lunch or dinner. If you dont have roasted bellpeppers at home, you can go for the storebought ones. This is my second dish for this week's blogging marathon coz the theme of the week is Cooking with Capsicum as a main ingredient.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#34.



1/4kg Spaghetti (cooked as per instruction)

Pepper powder

  2. Spaghetti must have been flavorful with the addition of roasted & pureed red bell peppers. That is a nice substitute to pasta sauce.
