This is the kind of food I make when My Other Half is out of town.

I’m serious! I’ve already mentioned that he’s on a serious health kick. Pasta, unfortunately for this noodle-lover, is therefore out of the question. But when Roomie (yes, Roomie!) came for supper recently, I seized the opportunity and made something NOT healthy.

To be fair, our appetizer was super healthy. But I already mentioned that in an earlier post.

This recipe is another using roasted red peppers. I told you I was on a rampage! I’m using them at every opportunity. Mostly because they’re delicious, but also because the jar from Costco is so massive and it takes up way too much room in our fridge.

Anyway, this is freakin’ delicious and absolutely EASY. Like, boil the pasta and then throw everything for the sauce in a food processor. I love recipes like that.

And MAN I love pasta! And goat cheese.
