How to make red bell pepper fettuccine

Print this recipe
Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic dish, and one that many people love. The cream sauce coats pasta that's been perfectly cooked, and lots of Parmesan cheese is added both in and on top of the dish. It's Italian food at its best. But because Alfredo isn't truly authentic Italian (it's a dish a U.S. cook created), we thought we'd play around with it a bit more. In the recipe below, roasted red peppers take this dish up a notch.
But don't let that scare you into thinking that recipe takes a long time to make. There's no need to actually roast the peppers because you can buy already-roasted peppers at the grocery store. Then it's just a matter of blending them with some heavy cream and cheese, and the sauce is finished. Heat it up and toss it with perfectly cooked pasta. Of course, a little (or a lot) of Parmesan cheese can be added for a garnish.
