Did not have enough red peppers so used an orange instead of one of red hoping that was the reason for the bland taste - had to add lots of Tabasco and red pepper flakes to dress it up. Not sure if I will but if I make it again will definitely have to spice it up! Read More

This recipe is phenomenal! Very tasty easy to make and very versatile. I added the spices to the simmering pepper and cream mixture so the flavors would infuse with the sauce. I let it simmer stirring occasionally for 40 minutes and it only reduced by a 1/4 of the liquid...but was wonderful anyway! I may never eat tomato sauce again! Read More

This was very tasty. I was looking for a spicy sauce and so I added a lot more cayenne to suit our tastes. All seasonings (except lemon) were added to the cream mixture to infuse in the sauce. I also steamed some chopped tri-colored peppers and tossed the sauce in with the peppers and some cooked chicken. Poured the sauce pepper and chicken mixture over some radiatore pasta noodles. Topped with crushed red pepper and graded Parmesan cheese. Delish! Read More

This sauce is fabulous! And so easy. It did take longer than 30 minutes for mine to reduce but maybe I wasn't cooking it at a high enough temp for fear of scalding the cream. We had a bunch leftover so I greased my muffin pan and poured in the remaining sauce then froze. I wrapped each one in saran wrap and stored in the freeze. Now we can pull out individual servings when ever we want. We also served it over crab cakes. Delicious! Read More

Wow amazing. I had low expectations for this I tried several times at making a different red pepper cream sauce from this site and was not a fan. I'm so glad that I tried this one! I forgot red bell peppers when I went to the grocery store but had a jar of roasted red peppers so I used that instead (it had 2 peppers in it). I also wanted to make this a bit lower in calories so I used half skim milk the rest half and half in place of the cream. Used hot paprika too. This one is going in the fav's folder thanks so much for the recipe:) Edit 10/20/11 I recently made this recipe again using fresh red bell peppers I must say that I really enjoyed this sauce more the last time that I made it using the roasted red peppers they really enhance the flavor. This sauce is amazing either way though. Read More
