Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wash the red bell peppers. Rough chop the peppers and 1/2 the red onion.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil. Put the peppers and onions on the foil. Sprinkle with a bit of olive oil and mix with your hands to make sure all pieces are covered slightly in oil. Add the 3 cloves of garlic and put into the oven for 15 minutes. You want the veggies roasted but not shriveled or with black or browned skin.

  • While veggies are roasting, cook pasta according to package directions. Once done, drain, rinse and set aside.
  • After the veggies are roasted place them into a food processor along with the can of white beans AND it’s liquid, the nutritional yeast, red pepper flakes and Adobo seasoning.

  • Process until creamy. You might have to stop half way and scrape any bits from the sides with a spatula then replace lid and continue processing.

  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Serves 4 to 6.
  • Best if served immediately. If it sits too long the pasta will absorb some of the flavors of the sauce.
  • I use 1 full teaspoon of red pepper flakes and 1 full teaspoon of Adobo seasoning. If you think that might be too salty or too hot for you, then try 1/2 of each first, process the sauce and taste it. If you want more salt add more Adobo seasoning. If you want more heat add more red pepper flakes.
  • Keeps for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
  • Does not freeze.
  • The Nutritional Information was calculated using Banza Chickpea Pasta which adds more protein and fiber than regular pasta.
