I love the flavors and colors of vegetables in the Summer! Just seeing all the fresh and brightly-colored vegetables at the farmer’s market makes me want to create beautiful recipes. Roasting red peppers with the sweet cherry tomatoes, brings out their creaminess and flavor in a different way than just sautéing them. It becomes a colorful painting on the plate, and even more memorable when you’ve taken your first bite. This dish is so easy and so sweet and delicious, I know you will be making it all Summer long, and it’s even vegan. The recipe uses store bought fettuccine pasta, but if you feel adventurous and have enough time – don’t worry, it won’t be so time consuming – then you can even try to make fresh pasta using a pasta maker.
