Pasta with Roasted Bell Pepper & Carrot Pesto

Pasta is a versatile dish which can recreated in many versions i.e. as salads and with many different Sauces. Pasta comes in all shapes and sizes depending upon the size we decide what kind of pasta has to be chosen. Always go for durum wheat pasta as its healthy and also tasty to eat.

Normally when we think of pasta there are standard two sauces one is white sauce based on cheese and other is red i.e. arrabiata sauce (Italian), which is garlic, tomato based and red chilli and cooked in olive oil.

Mainly sauces/pesto are made from fresh vegetables like tomatoes, spinach, basil, red bell peppers. Nuts like pine nuts and walnuts. This sauce I had tried a couple of years ago, but in a microwave method this time I am trying stove top method.
