This Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Sauce is so easy to make yet so tasty. Toss it with pasta for your loved ones and have a special dinner ready in about 15 minutes!
Valentine’s Day is so close and I feel like I dropped the ball on planning something for dinner Matt this year (I’m making him some Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats for breakfast so at least I have that going for me). Not that we do anything elaborate for Valentine’s Day – I don’t like flowers and chocolate isn’t always vegan – but I like to do at least a little something special for him. I wanted a dish I could make quickly but that still said “love” so I figured a red meal would do the trick.
Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
Tomato sauce, while tasty, just seemed a little boring for Valentine’s Day so I went with red peppers. My Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Sauce is made with just a few basic ingredients and only takes about 10 minutes to make (depending on how fast you chop onions). Throw the sauce on some pasta, top with some fresh parsley and my vegan parmesan and you’re ready for a tasty Valentine’s Day dinner the whole family can enjoy.
