    Serves: 8 

    • 2 red peppers, cut into chunks
    • 500ml double cream
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Combine the red peppers and cream in a pot and bring to the boil over medium heat; reduce heat to medium-low and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until the cream reduces to about 250ml, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the paprika, lemon juice, salt, white pepper and cayenne pepper.
    2. Pour the sauce into a blender. Hold the lid firmly with a kitchen towel while blending, using a few quick pulses to get the sauce moving before leaving it on to blend until smooth. Serve hot.

    I added a teaspoon of minced garlic, some parm shredded cheese and a little extra cayenne pepper and the recipe turned out great! I mixed some italian sausage and penne pasta with the sauce.

    This recipe is phenomenal! Very tasty, easy to make and very versatile. I added the spices to the simmering pepper and cream mixture so the flavors would infuse with the sauce. I let it simmer, stirring occasionally for 40 minutes and it only reduced by a 1/4 of the liquid...but was wonderful anyway! I may never eat tomato sauce again!  -  03 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very tasty. I was looking for a spicy sauce and so I added a lot more cayenne to suit our tastes. All seasonings (except lemon) were added to the cream mixture to infuse in the sauce. I also steamed some chopped, tri-colored peppers and tossed the sauce in with the peppers and some cooked chicken. Poured the sauce, pepper and chicken mixture over some radiatore pasta noodles. Topped with crushed red pepper and graded Parmesan cheese. Delish!  -  01 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
