Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Sauce; Recipe or Not

2 large jars of roasted red peppers, drained

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 medium onion, diced

1 1/2 t. dried Italian herbs

salt & pepper

3 T. half & half or heavy cream

Olive oil

1/2 c. vegetable or chicken stock, if needed

The Prep: In a food processor or blender, puree the roasted red peppers. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once heated, sauté the onions for a few minutes, then add the garlic for one minute. Next, add the pureed roasted red peppers, the Italian herbs, and a pinch of salt & pepper. If the sauce seems too thick, add vegetable or chicken broth to thin it. Add the half & half or heavy cream and add more salt & pepper if needed. Cook the sauce until hot & bubbling.

Notes: I cooked 1 lb. of pasta to go with this and when combined, I thought the noodles were a little thin on sauce so I would recommend using a 1/2 lb. of pasta if you like a higher sauce to pasta ratio.
