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)
2tbsp Olive oil
3nos Garlic cloves (chopped)
1no Onion(chopped)
1cup Roasted red bellpeppers
Salt
Pepper powder
1/4cup Heavy cream
1/2tsp Dry parsley leaves
1/4tsp Dry red chilly flakes

Heat the 1tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet, add the onions and garlic cloves and saute until the veggies gets well cooked.

Add in the roasted bellpepper, cook for few minutes.

Remove the skillet from the heat and let them cool..

Transfer them to a blender and blend it as a puree.

Heat the remaining olive oil,pour the grounded bellpepper puree, add the salt,pepper and cook for few seconds.

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