Pasta in red bellpepper sauce – easy snack recipes

Blogging has become a integral part of my life again. I often keep thinking about food , new recipes and blog improvements. I spend sometime atleast few times a week going through old posts and doing other things concerning different aspects of blogging especially after moving to wordpress. I am enjoying it and its a great stressbuster and I do hope to continue with this work regularly unlike a last few years where I could not find much time and blogging always took a backseat.

Pasta is a regular thing at our place. I make atleast once in a week or two. Kids enjoy it too. My son loves it in his lunch box. I make the pasta with white sauce most of the times, but I try to do something different so that it doesn’t get too boring for us too. So my readers often see a pasta recipe coming up every now and then.

red bell pepper pasta      This time, I made using red bellpeppers and tomatoes and the idea was given by a friend as she makes it often this way. I also added a little tomato paste for a more vibrant red colour. You can add a few slit fresh red chillies or even chilly flakes if you prefer a spicy version otherwise we liked the slight tangy taste of the pasta. I added a little parmesan before serving it to the kids. My kids like anything cheesy and they liked it that way. pasta recipe    Here in this recipe I have just sauteed the bellpeppers and tomatoes till soft and then ground it to a paste. This is a very simple process.But you can also grill them in the oven and then grind it. This will give a nice smoky flavour too.I will be doing it next time. I got a bottle of pasta herbs from the supermarket this time and it was quite good and imparted a nice flavour. But in case you don’t have this, you can also add oregano and other flavours which you prefer. I hope you try this and do let me know how it turns out for you.
