  • OMG Awesome Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

    This recipe is amazing. I had it with pasta and I'm using it for a lasagne tomorrow night! Only thing I did was roasted 4 large peppers instead of 2 and used 1 cup of 1/2 and 1/2 instead of 2 cups. I think it would have been too thin otherwise. Enjoy!
    My current regimen:
    Dancing, Laughing, Petting Emily and Louise - my shihtzus

    Tried and gave up on:
    Warm Baths
    Millions of supplements
    Elmiron instillations - did 5 weekly instills and did not help. Gave up.
    Oxytrol patch - no consistent relief after 3 weeks and very expensive
    Sanctura XR - tried for 6 weeks with no consistent relief
    Imipramine - tried for a week, but started to have a "hesitant" void - kind of twitchy.
    PTNS - doctor's office was disorganized, appts took hours and gave up after 4 treatments
    Vaginal valium suppositories - not as effective as taking valium orally
    Cystoprotek - ridiculously overpriced - taking same supplements from CVS
    Elmiron - 100mg in the morn, 200mg in the late afternoon - no results after 1 year
    Elavil - 25 mg at night- no consistent relief and 5 extra pounds
    IV Vitamin C - the only person with an allergic reaction to Vitamin C drips

      I had this for dinner tonight and it was great! I am not a huge fan of peppers (I'm a really picky eater, but now that I am on the IC diet I am learning to like some new things) but I think it had a good taste and for the pasta lover in my it was a great sub for marinara or vodka cream sauce.

      I used two peppers and only did one cup of half and half. I wish that so many of these recipes didn't have so much heavy whipping cream and half and half. Yummy, but not helpful for my girlish figure =p

          I hope this is good. I read the reviews over on the allrecipes site and many of them said it was bland until things like red pepper flakes, onions and cayenne were added.

          Hoping this will appease me and help me not miss tomato sauce so much!

          Diagnosed with IC 6/13

          Diagnosed with PFD (Pelvic Floor Dysfunction) 8/13

            I made this tonight for dinner for the first time and it was AWESOME!! I used 2 large red peppers and 1 large yellow pepper (for a little added sweetness). It was the first time I'd ever roasted a vegetable in my life. It was a lot of work and really time consuming (the entire process took me about 2 hours), but it turned out so yummy. I will definitely make it again. Some things I learned along the way:

            1) line the baking sheet with aluminum foil first. If you don't use aluminum foil, roasting the peppers will absolutely ruin your pan.
            2) to roast, instead of broiling, set your oven on 500 degrees. Cook for 20 minutes, then using tongs, turn the peppers and cook another 20 minutes.
            3) serve over penne pasta. Mix the pasta and sauce well in a bowl so the sauce can get all inside the holes of the pasta. Delish!
            (I added some garlic powder to mine when I added the pats of butter at the end, too).

              I have made the Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce many times in the past 6 months. Although I love it, I always felt there was something missing. When I made it this past weekend, it hit me what it was. When I used to eat homemade spaghetti sauce, I always added about 1 teaspoon of sugar. So this time when I made the Red Pepper Cream Sauce, I did the same thing. That was it!! The sauce was good before but it's even better now.

                This sauce works really well on a homemade beef & bean burrito, too. Since I can't use taco sauce anymore, my burritos were sorely lacking in flavor. But I thought I'd just try this sauce tonight on my burritos to see how it tasted. You know what? I think I've found the missing link! On a burrito.... it's pretty good!

                  Yes the small amount of sugar added makes a big difference! I did this too because it always seemed there was something missing in my roasted red pepper sauce.
