This was a delicious sauce! I didn't get enough time to peel all the peppers but they blended up fine and just made the sauce a little chunkier. Just make sure to season it as it gives it some great flavor, I used some garlic salt and it was delicious! I decided to use have an half for the creme which worked well. All on all this was a great pasta dinner sauce. Made for ZWT5, Dining Daredevils ;)

Sorry Spain, but it seems the Zaar-ites are bent on making this one Italian! I heeded the advice of other reviewers and added sauteed onion, garlic, and dried basil, then served this over pasta with fresh shaved parmesan. What a delicious change of pace from tomato sauce! I used VERY fresh veggies from today's farmer's market, and the recipe kept that fresh taste. I used cream cheese for the creme fraiche as well, but next go-round I will probably just leave it out. I used a fairly copious amount of garlic, and my only complaint is that I didn't add enough salt during cooking. That was easily remedied at the table. I added broiled chicken for DH's part, and it went very well. Thanks for posting, Karen Elizabeth. This is absolutely a keeper and I can't wait to try it with your Party Loaf! Made for Veg*n Tag.

So delicious! I didn't have creme fraiche, so used cream cheese. I love it and this will be wonderful on pasta! Thanks Karen! Made for Australian Swap#20!
