Pasta in roasted bell pepper sauce is one of the most famous pasta. The flavour of roasted peppers give it a nice flavour and taste. I have altered the traditional recipe with few changes.
2 cups penne pasta
2 red bell peppers chopped roughly
1 medium sized carrot sliced
1 big size onion sliced
1 table spoon chopped garlic
1 tea spoon chopped green chillis
1 small onion diced
1/2 cup blanched sweet corns
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped baby corns
1 cup tomato puree
1 table spoon butter
1/4 cup pimento stuffed green olives
1 tea spoon Italian mixed herbs
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
2 tea spoon chili flakes
1/4 tea spoon crushed peppercorns
2-3 table spoons olive oil
Spread the chopped red bell peppers, carrots and sliced onion on a baking tray and sprinkle olive oil and little salt on them and bake them for 15 mins at 180 degrees.Cool them and then grind them using little water to fine paste.
Boil water in a big vessel and add little salt and oilive oil. Add the pasta and cook for 7-8 mins till its 'al dente'.Drain it and spinkle some olive oil and keep the cooked pasta aside.
Heat little olive oil in a pan and add chopped garlic and green chillis and saute for 2 mins. Then add diced onions and chopped bell peppers.Add the sweet corn kernels, tomato puree and mix it well.Add the roasted pepper sauce to it and cook for 2 mins.
Add salt, peppercorns, olives, and chili flakes.finally add grated cheese and cook till it melts in the sauce. Now add the cooked pasta, mixed herbs and toss for some time. finally add the butter and remove from flame.
Garnish with stuffed green olives and sprinkle little EVOO and serve hot.
