whole grain penne and broc with roasted red pepper sauce

Submitted by: QUEENJEANINE11

Introduction

The red pepper sauce is made from scratch with roasted garlic as well. Its easy to make but does take a bit of time. If you like the recipe its easier to make a bigger batch and freeze some. Also good if you add in spinach at the end but i had none on hand when i was making this today! The red pepper sauce is made from scratch with roasted garlic as well.
