  1. Double yum! This recipe is fantastic! The pasta sauce turned out velvety smooth and rich. I followed the ingredients but modified the cooking steps a bit. I pureed the garlic with the roasted red peppers, so the sauce would be uniformly smooth. Also, I cooked the sausage separately, as it was quite spicy and not suitable for DD's young pallet. I reserved enough sauce for DD's portion and added the sausage to only DH's and mine. We served it over spaghetti. DD enjoyed hers emensely, saying "mmm" the entire time between mouthfuls. This sauce is a nice alternative to tomato sauce and so delicious. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Excellent. The only thing I had to change was, I realized too late I didn't have Farfalle, so I had to use Fusilli. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)


I love cooking for family and friends. I especially enjoy is like combining art and science to create something extraordinary. I am most known for making desserts like Recipe #336060. My pet peeve: when people sign-up to bring dessert to a pot-luck or dinner party and they bring something pre-made from the store. My friends and family now know to always let me bring the dessert. :) I enjoy traveling and believe that one of the best ways to experience a culture is through food. I have lived in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and currently live in the US. My rating system: 5 stars - Excellent! Delicious! Could not be better...will make often. 4 stars - Very good! May tweak slightly. 3 stars - Good base recipe. Will need to tweak. 2 stars - Ok. Will keep looking.
