Tortellini with Roasted Pepper Sauce

When the only things on your shopping list are stuffed pasta and a vegetable, that’s what we call a simple recipe. But not only is this recipe simple, it’s also super tasty!

In this recipe I use tortellini to switch it up from the traditional penne and spaghetti.

Quick tip:ย If want to remove the skin from your roasted peppers, remove peppers from the oven, put the pepper pieces in a paperย  bag, and wait a few minutes. Once the bag fills with steam, you will be able to easily remove the pepper skins with a knife.
