Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Alfredo

Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Alfredo Final 1 Well, turns out I’m not a total flake! I got a recipe up! {It’s about TIME…}

Soooooo yeah. We’re talkin’ pasta today. Friggin’ awesome creamy goat cheesiness roasted red pepper alfredo goodness. Oh yeah. Come to mama. If you are a goat cheese hater, I will forgive you. If you are a roasted red pepper hater, I guess I’ll forgive you too. When these two little things get cooked and blended together, magic seriously happens. DEEEEE-LICIOUS magic.

PS- I’m a little obsessed with roasted red peppers. Ever since I made this a few months back, I cannot get enough roasted reds. Seriously on my list of top 5 foods I could not live without at this point in my life. Fo’sho’.

PPS- hahaha! Ok, scratch that first typed sentence! I have returned to flake status cause I just now remembered to draw a name for my Joy the Baker cookbook giveaway. :) BRB while I do that….

………5 minutes later……….

Random.org picked a winner!!

drum roll please……

Congratulations to entry #362, Theresa!! {Check your email, girl!}

HAHA……anyways, this stuff is easy, addicting and delicious. Seriously, one of the best things I’ve eaten all week! Mmmm….try it out tonight and see what you think! :)

Here’s how I made it:

Alfredo 1 Start out with 2 red peppers on a sheet tray. Stick these into a preheated 500 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.

alfredo 3 While those are cooking away, chop some onion

alfredo 5 and garlic.

alfredo 7 Saute these in some olive oil until tender, about 7 minutes or so.

alfredo 6 Once the roasted red peppers are all charred and dark looking, take them out of the oven and cover with foil. You want these to cool because they are hotter than the sun at this point in time…

alfredo 10 Now, back to the onions. Pour in some fat free half & half

alfredo 9 along with some garlic and herb goat cheese. I got this at a grocery store called New Seasons Market. I just started shopping there recently and LOVE it. Basically, it’s like the Oregon equivalent of Whole Foods.

alfredo 13 So, you just want to stir the cheese and half & half in together until the cheese is melted into the sauce.  Keep this warm over low heat.

alfredo 4 Now grate some parmesan cheese. Please find and use the good quality stuff. You’ll know it’s real by the rind. If the rind has parmigiano reggiano printed on the rind, then it’s good.

alfredo 11 At this point, your red peppers should be all wrinkled. That should make it super easy to peel the skin off. Remove the stem and seeds too while you’re at it.

alfredo 12 This is what they should look like when you’re done. Chop these babies up

alfredo 14 and toss them into the sauce with all that cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted.

alfredo 15 Now comes the fun part. Grab an immersion blender and puree the peppers and onions together to create your alfredo sauce. Feel free to do this in a food processor too. I like mine sort of on the chunky side so I didn’t go buck wild with the blending.

alfredo 2 Once you’re sauce is done, toss in some pasta and that’s it!

Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfreo Final 2 Hello gorgeous! I added extra cheese, salt, pepper and parsley to make it look purdy.

Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo Final 3 Don’t you want to dive right in? Yum yum yum times a million.

I didn’t bother with plates…

Hope you guys give this one a whirl! Dessert to come on Friday! :)

  1. I am seriously salivating just looking at that goat cheese and red pepper gorgeousness (is that a word?). I’m certain my jeans wouldn’t like me for eating this one, but I know my taste buds would!

      Actually, if you substitute the pasta for whole wheat, and use a small amount of goat cheese it can be pretty low calorie :-)

      You can also use brown rice pasta as well which tends to be a little softer. This recipe looks sooo fabulous! Just finished making the pasta for dinner tomorrow and I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Roasted red peppers are one of the best things in the world, and this looks like such a great dish (plus the goat cheese doesn’t hurt).

      y’all are crazy if you don’t put in goat cheese. Creamy AND sharp?! Get outta town.

  3. Looks great although not a huge fan of goat cheese..what would make a good substitute?!

      I bet fetta would be really good, or any other soft flavored cheese.

        I used roasted garlic cream cheese for my dish, worked perfectly :)

  12. Do you think that Boursin cheese could work in this instead if others in my house aren’t fans of the goatcheese? Weirdos. :-)

      That sounds like an awesome substitution!! I was wondering the same thing — I’m probably making this for my mom on Mother’s Day and she really doesn’t like goat cheese… Thanks for the lightbulb :)

  20. This looks so so so good! I love roasted peppers and goats cheese together – I used to make a sort of dressing of the two and serve it over steamed broccoli… super healthy, but a little less substantial! :)

  31. This was an amazing recipe. I tried it on my wife who LOVES goat cheese but hates red pepper (any pepper for that matter). Even she admitted she could love this! Thank you for the help in opening up her eyes. Now, my son, different story. He like the noodles, though!

  39. Hey Lauren :)

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe, I made this week and have been texting pretty much anyone who appreciates food as much as I do the recipe. Someone even saw my leftovers as lunch and said “what restaurant did you get it from?” I just added spinach fettuccine instead of regular fettuccine, chicken, and green peas. But overall, it was such an easy recipe to make and the taste was phenomenal. Thank you for sharing this! Looking forward to other recipes you post.

  42. I found this on Pinterest and thought, ‘this looks REALLY good!’

    So I convinced my mom to let me make it (I’m eighteen and still live with my mom while going to college), and we made this tonight. It was delicious! My mom wanted some chicken with it, so she made some of that to eat on the side, along with steamed broccoli. It all went pretty well together, and I ate it soo quickly! Glad I found this; thanks for posting it.
