I made this for dinner tonight and the kids and I all liked it. I also wish I had a little more direction with the ingredients. I used an 8 ounce container of chive and onion cream cheese, a 12 ounce jar of roasted red peppers. I processed the two together in the blender and then added just a little of the oil that the peppers were packed in to give it more of the red pepper flavor. I added some cooked, diced chicken that I seasoned with italian seasoning and some mushrooms. It made a nice main dish. Thanks for the recipe.
Very tasty for a two ingredient sauce! I used regular cream cheese because it was more economical and I used garlic powder, black pepper and a bit of sea salt for spunk - you could add whatever you feel like to it. I prefer the chunkiness so just cut up the red pepper instead of putting it in the blender. I agree that you could use this as a dip for a multitude of things. Thanks for posting such a simple and delicious recipe, Richard-NYC.
While I originally thought I would branch out and try this with roasted red peppers like the recipe called for, I just could not be so brave. So, I substituted a can of roasted tomatoes for the peppers. This was so yummy - and very easy! (I know this totally defeats the whole title of the recipe, so I will try it again with the red peppers.)
This recipe is delicious. I wasn't quite sure of how big of a container was supposed to be used for the garlic & herb spreadable cheese so I just picked up a 12 oz one. We ended up using 16 ounces of rotelle pasta instead of 12 ounces but about 2/3 of a Tablespoon of black pepper helped make up for the lower sauce:pasta ratio. I definitely plan to make this delicious yet inexpensive and simple dish again.
