Red Pepper Sauce

Red Pepper Sauce I love Italian food, but with my husband being allergic to tomatoes I only get to enjoy pastas, salsas, and other tomato based dishes while out with friends. Then a cousin mentioned her red pepper sauce recipe. The original recipe had way too much garlic for me and not enough peppers to use it for enchilidas, chili, or a red sauce for pasta dishes so I've modified it to fit my families needs, and it keeps the whole house from smelling like garlic for a week too.

  • Ingredients: 1/2 cup olive oil
    3 garlic cloves minced
    1/4 cup butter
    4 medium to large sized red peppers seeded and sliced
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons basil
  • Instructions: Add olive oil, garlic, butter, lemon juice, salt, and basil to a large fryer pan on low heat (so the garlic doesn't burn while you cut up the peppers). Seed and slice the peppers and add them to the frying pan. Increase heat to medium and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until peppers are soft. Pour mixture into blender and mix on low setting until smooth. Three garlic cloves can be too much for some. If I'm making Red Pepper sauce for pizzas I'll leave the garlic out completely. Now you have a great red sauce for enchiladas, chili, lasagna, pasta or any other dish that uses tomato sauce.
  • Serves: makes enough for one pasta or enchilada dish, or soup
  • Cuisine: -Select (optional)-
  • Cooking method: -Select (optional)-
  • Special ingredients: no dried fruits, no fermented / pickled foods, no seeds, no beans / legumes / pulses, no dried / ground spices, no meat / poultry, no alcohol, no grains
  • Just right for...: Comfort food, Light fare
  • Top 8 allergens?: gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free, fish-free, shellfish-free, nut-free, peanut-free
  • Active/prep time: 0-15 minutes
  • Total time (inc active/prep): 30-45 minutes
  • Serving suggestions: I use this recipe as a replacement for tomato sauce since we have a tomato allergy in our family. This red sauce is great for pasta dishes, soups, enchiladas, etc.
