Penne Ziti Rigate in Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce

I had been craving some alfredo sauce, and when I came across Classico’s Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce, I had to try it out. I know you can make homemade alfredo, but I didn’t really feel like going that route this week. I did add zucchini, sliced mushrooms, yellow onion, roasted garlic cloves (which I had roasted last week) and lots of ground black pepper – to give it some oomph. All mixed together with some Penne Ziti Rigate pasta. I have to say, this alfredo sauce will be my go to, whenever I crave it – as it was really flavourful and just plain hit the spot…omnomnom!!

Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂

What’s for Dinner Tonight!!

Made a super simple Pasta Bake tonight. Started off by sauteeing 2 onions, minced garlic, 2 zucchinis, mushrooms (1 package), roasted red peppers (1 small jar – about 4 peppers), dried red pepper flakes and ground black pepper. At this point I added one of our favourite jars of pasta sauce. During this time, I had the spiral pasta boiling. Once cooked, I mixed the sauce and pasta together. Then I placed half the mixture in a 9×13 dish, and sprinkled 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, before putting the rest of the mixture on top and sprinkling another cup of cheese. Once that’s done, you stick it into a 375 degree oven for 20-25mins or until heated through.

Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂
