  • 1 12 oz jar roasted red pepper drained
  • 3/4 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup olive oil add more if you want a saucier consistency for pasta
  • 1/2 cup marinated sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil drained
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Add all of the ingredients to a high powered blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  • If you would like the sauce a little runnier for pasta, you can add more olive oil.



The jar of roasted red peppers I used had one whole pepper in, so if you would rather roasted your own pepper you can do that.
