    MyHappyEatings's Note:

    A creamy sauce with a perfect blend of fresh basil and roasted red peppers (especially good in summer when basil is in season). Kids and adults will both love it. Pairs well with zucchini and/or chicken either on the side or mixed into the pasta.

      This dish was quite easy to make and was something different! My whole family enjoyed it and it was quick to prepare and serve. It cost me about $12 dollars or so to make eight servings. It is definitely worth it!

      We made this with 8 ounces of spaghetti because that's what we had on hand, and it was delicious and covered the long noodles just fine. Fast, easy, and tasty!
