Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

Submitted by: -NAMASTE-

Introduction

Inspired by my favorite dish at a local pastaria, this healthier version of the sauce, made with a roux, will delight and surprise the jaded tongue. Use over any pasta you wish. I prefer Trader Joe's Sprouted Wheat Pappardelle Pasta. Nummy!

Ingredients

    1 tbsp Butter
    2 tbsp Kamut flour
    4 Red Peppers, roasted, peeled and food processed
    2 cups Nonfat Milk
    24 oz chicken, cubed and cooked
    1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
    1/2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
    1 cup of asparagus, cut in 1/2" pieces

Directions

With the butter and kamut flour (whole wheat is an acceptable substitute), make a roux (http://bit.ly/makeroux) but instead of 1:1, do 1 part butter to two parts flour. This take a little patience, so don't rush it.

To the roux, vigorously stir in the red pepper paste, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and cayenne. When completely combined, add the chicken and turn down the roux to low until use.
