Roasted Red Pepper and Bacon Sauce Pasta is a community recipe submitted by Glitters and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Puree red peppers, tomatoes, oregano, cayenne, wine, and oil in food processor or blender until smooth.
  • Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, cool, and crumble.
  • Leave about 2 Tbsp. bacon fat in skillet and sauté the chopped onion and garlic until soft and lightly golden. Add red pepper mixture to skillet and bring to simmer. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until flavours meld, 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cream and half the crumbled bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss sauce with pasta and serve, sprinkling bowls with remaining bacon.
  • Serve with grated Italian cheese if desired.
    • I cooked the whole pound of bacon so there would be plenty to serve on top of the bowls of pasta, and put some extra in the sauce too.
