Make in the blender – ROASTED RED PEPPER SAUCE!
This sauce does it all! Toss it with pasta, simmer your chicken or shrimp, even a dip for your fries or drizzle on your tacos! A staple recipe you will use over and over again!
This sauce uses simple ingredients but when combined they go boom!
We first used this sauce in our Skillet Chicken in Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and thought hey, this easy sauce can do a lot more than chicken!
We used store bought in a jar, Roasted Red Peppers but you can roast your own as well. Of all the store bought items one can buy I will say that roasted red peppers taste amazingly like home made.
PRO TIP: How to roast your own peppers. Heat your broiler to high. Slice your peppers in half. Take out seeds and veins. Press flat on a baking sheet and broil until charcoal black. Watch closely!!! Remove from oven and place in plastic or paper bag for 10 minutes. This will allow the skin to steam and come right off!
Simply drain a jar of store bought roasted peppers, garlic, basil and a touch of cream and toss them all in your blender! We love the Nutri Bullet and use it for everything from salad dressings to smoothies.
A quick 30 second blend and you have Roasted Red Pepper Sauce for EVERYTHING!

How long will this sauce keep?
