Roasted Red Peppers
To make this recipe in only 15 minutes you’ll need red peppers that have already been roasted. They can be purchased in a jar ahead of time from amazon or in your grocery store. You can also roast your own red peppers in advance to save time. If you are roasting the peppers yourself, be sure to remove the pepper skin.
For this recipe, I used voilife vegan feta cheese. Any vegan feta cheese will work for this recipe. Check out this recipe for homemade high-protein vegan feta. If you don’t have vegan feta, vegan ricotta will do the trick!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Although olive oil is the most complimentary flavour for this recipe, any neutral-flavoured oil can be used. If you have garlic-infused oil, even better!
How long will this roasted red pepper pasta dish last?
This vegan roasted red pepper pasta dish is best enjoyed fresh, and will last for 1-2 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. However, the roasted red pepper sauce (without pasta noodles) can be stored for up to 1 week in an airtight container in the fridge. Keep in mind that freezing this sauce may change its texture, so it is best to avoid freezing it.
