    Elizabeth's Note:

    Roasting brings out the best in vegetables by concentrating their essential oils. This creamy sauce is short on spiciness but long on flavor! Plus, it's easy, elegant and very romantic! Tested at high altitude.

      This is fantastic! The only change I made was to use fresh basil instead of dried (my garden overfloweth -- I doubled the amount called for). DH is still raving about tonight's dinner and has asked for it again tomorrow night. Thank you for sharing!

      Not what I was looking for. Too much basil and not enough roasted red pepper flavor. Sorry.

      Just finished making this and it turned out AWESOME!! thanks for submitting. The only thing was that I miss-read and added FOUR roasted red peppers LOL .... and I didn't leave it chunky; I whipped it with my hand blender as I'm using it as a topping sauce for grilled chicken breast. :o)
