Found this in The French Vegetarian Bistro Cookbook...it's creamy and delicious and very adaptable to your own tastes

  • one onion
  • two red peppers, roasted, peeled and seeded
  • two tomatoes,
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • three portabello mushrooms roasted, and diced
  • two sprigs of fresh basil
  • tsp. thyme
  • tabasco or other hot pepper sauce to taste
  • salt, pepper
  • favourite pasta (fettucine is great with this recipe)

Pour two tbsp of oil and heat, fry onion til nice and soft.

At the same time broil the peppers until very blackened on the outside - peel and seed and add to onions (approx. 7 min)

Finely dice tomatoes and add to fry pan

Roast mushrooms (approx. 7 min)and add to fry pan

Add sprigs of fresh basil

Let sauce cool then pour into a blender and puree until very smooth

To serve, place a nice scoop of sauce on top of pasta and voila!!! C'est magnifique!!!
