Directions for: Roasted Pepper Penne


500 g penne

4 peppers (an assortment of red, yellow and orange)

¼ cup olive oil, plus 1 Tbsp


pat butter

1 clove garlic, grated

½ cup shredded Asiago cheese (or you can use Parmigiano, too!)

fresh basil leaves, chopped


1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF and prepare a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Dice your peppers into bite-size pieces. Toss with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and salt. Place on the baking sheet and roast in the oven until tender and browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.

3. In a big pot of salted water (it should taste like the ocean), prepare your pasta according to package directions. Before draining, reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water.

4. Place the drained pasta immediately back into the pot over no heat. Stir in the reserved water, about 1/4 cup oil and pat of butter. Using a micro plane, grate the clove of garlic into the pasta. You'll want to do this right away while the pasta is hot so it cooks the garlic a bit. Stir in the roasted peppers and cheese.

5. Stir in basil and then sprinkle the top with a bit more cheese, serve and enjoy.
