Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Red Pepper Linguine

Reposted from

Sweet weet & Spicy Red Pepper Linguine

I love the use of fresh basil and Greek yogurt with a little kick from the hot pepper sauce! The trick to this recipe is keeping it warm… toss pasta and sauce at the last minute before serving. I found this in a Costco Connection magazine. If this is too spicy for your kids, you can easily cook extra plain pasta to keep everyone happy! If your kids don’t like whole wheat pasta, try mixing 1/2 white with 1/2 wheat.

8 oz Whole Wheat Linguine
1-1/2 cups Marinara Sauce
4oz jar of Roasted Red Peppers
1/4 cup 2% Greek Yogurt
1 cup fresh Basil, chopped
1 tsp Hot Pepper Sauce
Salt & Pepper
6Tbsp Parmesan

Directions: Cook Pasta. In the meantime, cut red peppers into strips and simmer with marinara sauce over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Place yogurt in bowl and whisk in a little bit of the marinara mixture to “temper” the yogurt (prevents curdling). Then whisk the yogurt into the sauce. Cover to KEEP WARM. Drain linguine and toss in a large bowl with the sauce, basil and hot pepper sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
