Linguine with Roasted Garlic and Pepper sauce..

To try and budget a little better
we have been eating at home more.. 
which can sometimes become a little boring.. 
especially if you recycle the same recipes over and over.

So I have been just searching all my cookbooks
and the fabulous web
for new recipes that are still nice and easy
I found a new recipe in a cookbook that we got
for just a buck.. 
my goodness.. 
I am finally unearthing all it's potential.

Linguine with Roasted Garlic and Pepper sauce!

Tyler Florence once said on his show that 
he always uses San Marzano tomatoes..
and I must say they add something special to every dish that 
they enter, maybe a little extra sweetness..

yummy sauce


Recipe for Red Pepper Sauce:
6 large garlic cloves (I only used five.. and was garlicy enough for me)
14 oz bottled roasted red bell peppers drained
7 oz canned chopped tomatoes
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. dried chili flakes
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme or oregano (I used dried cause thats what I had)

Pasta (I used fresh linguine, yum)

First, you need to roast the garlic for 7-10 minutes at 400 degrees
Then start the blending.. 
the drained peppers, tomatoes, and oil 
then add the garlic, sans peels
and add the rest (chili flakes, thyme or oregano, and salt and pepper to taste)

Then heat up the sauce for your lovely pasta.. 
Nice and easy and new.. 
only took about 30 minutes.
