Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 12 ounces penne, regular or whole-wheat

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. 
  2. Place the drained roasted red peppers, soy milk, olive oil, salt, garlic, tahini, red pepper flakes and nutritional yeast in a blender and puree until creamy. Season to taste as needed with salt/pepper and add to a large skillet. Simmer over medium heat while you make the pasta. 
  3. Place the pasta in the water and cook until under al-dente, about 1-2 minutes before the recommended time on the package. The pasta should be still pretty toothy, but not hard. 
  4. Drain the pasta and reserve 1 cup pasta water. Add the pasta to the sauce on the stove and cook, adding a splash of pasta water at a time to loosen the sauce as needed as you toss the sauce with the pasta to finish cooking.
  5. Divide into 4 bowls and eat.
