    BlondieItaliana's Note:

    This is a very easy homemade recipe that has all the traditional tastes of Italy. It's a Penne Rigate dish with Roasted Red Pepper, Artichoke, Onion & Garlic Puree. I happen to love this and so does DH. You have to like roasted red pepper to enjoy this recipe to the fullest extent. It's so simple to prepare as most of the prep is done with a food processor or blender for the puree then you just serve it over your favorite pasta - we like it best over Penne Rigate, but any pasta will do. ** You could also stir in some cooked shrimp or cooked sliced sausage if you want a more hearty dish **

      I've made this dish a few times now. I don't bother with the garnishes, I think it is great with just the sauce. I've used it for both a side dish, and as a light lunch. It' in my 'rotation' now, so it's a keeper!

      Really good! I am allergic to tomatoes so I'm always looking for an alternative. I love artichokes and black olives so I knew I would love this recipe. I went by the recipe except I did add a little of the artichoke marinade and some hot pepper flakes. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

      I just love the ingredients in this no cook pasta sauce. However, it did turn out a little bland, so I added parmesan and a tad more garlic and olive oil. I made half the batch with 200g of penne (2/5 of a package of 500g) and it was perfect for the 2 of us.
