  • Food Processor
  • Large Pot


  • 16 ounces pasta use certified Gluten Free if needed
  • 12 ounces roasted red peppers drained
  • 1 cup basil leaves or parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup almonds toasted
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Cook the Pasta: according to package instructions. Drain, and set aside.
  • Roast the peppers - you can either use jarred roasted bell peppers, or make your own from scratch.  Place bell peppers on the top rack of your oven, and broil them under the low broiler setting until flesh is charred.  Remove from oven, allow peppers to cool, and remove charred flesh.
  • Add Ingredients - to a food processor, add the bell peppers, basil, garlic, almonds, chili flakes, and white wine vinegar. Secure the lid, and begin processing over low speed. Open the top of the food processor and stream in the olive oil until the pesto becomes a thick paste.
  • Taste, and adjust seasoning as needed. Toss the sauce with the pasta, and heat over low until hot.
  • Serve with garlic bread, and an extra sprinkle of basil or parsley for garnish.
