The sauce is made from red capsicum and tomatoes. It is flavored with Italian seasoning. Red peppers are roasted on direct flame. It gives the good charred flavor to the pasta dish. I have roasted them at home, but you use store bought one that comes in the jar.

The red bell pepper has mild sweet taste. And the sourness of tomato balance out the flavors. It makes really smooth, creamy sauce without adding whole lot of cheese or cream.

This is healthy pasta dish if used whole grain or wheat pasta. Also it has mild flavors. So you can pack in kids lunch box as well. I am sure they will love it.

3) Roast them on direct flame by turning them around every few minutes. Roast till all the sides are roasted and black in color. Covering with aluminium foil is optional. I did it because it is mess free. While roasting the pepper, juice will be leaking. So all the juice is collected in the foil. And no more messy stove.

4) Once roasted, let it cool down to touch, then remove the foil.
