I posted about one of my favorite sites, BzzAgent, on Works For Me Wednesday a couple of weeks ago. One of the great products that I received as an agent was Barilla Tortellini and Tortelloni. This pasta is extremely versatile and I loved each of the different flavors. As is common when receiving a BzzKit, it included not only samples of the actual pasta product, but plenty of coupons and recipe ideas. The Three Cheese Tortellni with Creamy Roasted Red Pepper sauce was my absolute favorite. Probably because I adore anything with roasted red peppers in it...sigh. Anyways, I also liked this recipe the best because it is SO extremely simple it's almost embarrassing. Everyone I've made this for believes it to be some fancy schmancy recipe that takes forever! Ha ha ha. It takes about 5 minutes!
Let's get started, shall we?
1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves (1/2 teaspoon) garlic, minced
1 cup prepared alfredo sauce
1 package (8 ounces)BARILLA Three Cheese Tortellini
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
BRING a large pot of water to a boil.
PUREE peppers in a food processor or blender; set aside.
HEAT olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and sauté over medium-low heat for 2 minutes. Stir in pepper puree and alfredo sauce. Continue cooking for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
COOK Tortellini according to package directions. Drain.
ADD parsley to sauce mixture. Combine Tortellini with sauce and serve.
That's it! Simple huh?
