Pasta With Vegan Baked Bell Pepper Sauce
2. July 2017
Pasta is one of my favorite dishes in the world and I guess I’m not the only one right? Perfect if you don’t really have time to cook, super versatile and always delicious. The absolute classic is and remains tomato sauce. Everyone knows it and everyone loves it. But what if you can´t tolerate tomatoes anymore or you have to banish them from your plate because of a histamine intolerance?
Well, then you need a good alternative and I would like to introduce one to you here. A super aromatic sauce, as beautiful red as from tomatoes and equally delicious. Also for non-allergic persons an absolute recommendation.
The preparation is certainly somewhat more elaborate, but the final result really compensates for everything.
The base for the sauce is a puree made of oven-baked red bell peppers. I always prepare it in larger quantities and then keep it in the refrigerator.
You can find the recipe for the basic bell pepper puree here -> *CLICK*
I usually use spelt pasta because wheat is rather less well tolerated. But the sauce tastes very good with any kind of noodles, also with gluten-free ones!
Have fun with the recipe!
Dairy - free
For 2 servings
300g spelt pasta
1 1/2 cups bell pepper puree (360ml)
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Or another oil that you can tolerate well
1 small onion - cut into cubes (if compatible)
1 clove garlic- minced
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
I´m not using it
Some fresh basil for decoration
20 minutes (if the bell pepper puree is already prepared)
Heat the olive oil in a larger pot (do not let it get too hot!), add the onion and the garlic and cook until the onion gets translucent
Add the peppers, oregano and dried basil, boil briefly and then simmer for about 5 minutes at medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat up water and boil the pasta „al dente“ like recommended on the package
Put 1-2 tbsp of the pasta water into the sauce, drain the noodles, add them to the sauce in the pot and mix well. Serve immediately and garnish with fresh basil!
