Sweet roasted red peppers and creamy cheesey alfredo sauce make a perfect combination.
2 Red bell peppers, roasted
1-1/2 lbs Ground Sweet Italian Sausage ( or ground beef )
1/2 Small onion, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 Quart heavy cream
3 Tablespoons butter
1-1/2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 Cup grated parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons herbed goat cheese
1 Box linguine pasta
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place peppers on sheet pan and roast for 10 mins, turning peppers every few minutes. When done, cover with tin foil and let cool. In a large skillet, brown sweet italian sausage, drain fat, and set aside. In a large sauce pan on medium heat, melt butter and add onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Let them cook for 2 mins. Add flour and mix well. Let cook for another few minutes then add cream while stirring. Let sauce thicken and reduce heat to low. Add in parmesan and goat cheese. Stir or whisk well until melted. Once peppers are cooled, peel and chop into small pieces and add to sauce, along with sausage. Keep on low heat. Boil water for pasta, and cook for 10-12 minutes. Once pasta is done, combine with sauce. Garnish with some chopped parsley.
