Double yum! This recipe is fantastic! The pasta sauce turned out velvety smooth and rich. I followed the ingredients but modified the cooking steps a bit. I pureed the garlic with the roasted red peppers, so the sauce would be uniformly smooth. Also, I cooked the sausage separately, as it was quite spicy and not suitable for DD's young pallet. I reserved enough sauce for DD's portion and added the sausage to only DH's and mine. We served it over spaghetti. DD enjoyed hers emensely, saying "mmm" the entire time between mouthfuls. This sauce is a nice alternative to tomato sauce and so delicious. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
