(LIGHTENED UP!) RED PEPPER & GOAT CHEESE PASTA

October 22, 2018

This is pasta with a sauce that is UNTYPICALLY light and we therefore are really into. Because it’s still a red sauce I think that makes it seem like really hearty and definitely 100% not being deprived in any way.

There’s no cream in the sauce. It’s almost entirely just roasted red pepper and onions. Plus GOAT CHEESE. Like my favorite thing to be in any dish ever.

And I did penne. Why are penne so much sturdier than other pasta? Is it that it’s like, a stronger shape? Or they are just made thicker for some reason? I like them for this because in a nice, thick sauce they hold up well. (Not like YOU, RIGATONI.)

    You are absolutely amazing!!!!! All your recipes are so refreshingly unique!!!! Is this a spicy dish? As far as your movie experiences – I’m probably late given the date of this post but try and find a rural theater. And call and ask beforehand when they are the least crowded. Ppl tend to behave better when there aren’t so many of them haha :)
