Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Sauce over Linguine

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Rita1652

I had a large jar of roasted peppers that I needed to use and came up with this low fat recipe. If sauce is to thick you can thin with some of the pasta water. You can use 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs in place of the dried oregano, parsley, marjoram, & basil

This sauce is amazing! I use roasted peppers from a jar, increased the red pepper flakes and all the herbs, the sauce was red and rich and oh so good, I simmered mine for a couple of hours over very low heat, and served this over spaghetti, what a fabulous sauce! thanks Rita, we loved this!...Kitten:)
