Ravioli With Creamy Basil & Red Pepper Sauce

This sauce is so easy to prepare, and it used low fat and no fat ingredients. The roasted red peppers blended into the sauce give it a lovely pale pinkish color. I had a bag of frozen cheese ravioli in the freezer, and was looking for something other than a red sauce to serve it with. The original recipe, I believe, used fat free cream cheese, but I opted for low-fat instead. If you like to use no-fat cream cheese, please let me know how it turns out.

This was appealing to me because it was different than a typical cream sauce and it was pretty calorie friendly. It was also very quick and easy.Also, it gave me another dish to use my abundance of fresh basil in.
