Sunday Dinner: Creamy Red Pepper Pasta
I love making a beautiful meal every Sunday night. I have some extra time because I don’t work on Sunday and it’s a nice way to start my week. I can’t take credit for this one. I saw it today on Facebook and had to try it. This recipe comes from Bosh. You can find their awesome recipes on Facebook or at http://bosh.tv/. This dish is called Creamy Red Pepper Pasta. What I love about it is the sauce is vegan with no added sugar. It calls for two red chili peppers.
I went to the store today and could not find red chili peppers, so I chose two orange chili peppers. They can’t possibly be that different right? Well, I don’t know if they’re different, but I can say this pasta is SPICY! So spicy that I had to add vegan creamer to it. I added creamer with garlic powder, salt, pepper and extra cornstarch. Still incredibly spicy if you can believe it! The taste is amazing, though, and I will be trying this again with no chili peppers. I am not in love with foods being too spicy. Next time I will add some red chili flakes and call it a day. Defiantly try this one out. You won’t be disappointed. Just make sure you add the chili pepper to your taste!
