The other day, I made my first attempt at a non-tomato-based pasta sauce from scratch.  Saute garlic, add red bell pepper, cook with red pepper flakes and lemon juice, serve with chicken.  I totally cribbed this from a Gordan Ramsey show.  The red bell pepper was cooked too long, and it was hard to taste the lemon.

Other pasta recipes to mine for ideas:

In summary, the bell pepper should only be cooked a couple minutes, and the lemon juice can be left out.  Possible ingredients:

  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomatoes (original or sun-dried)
  • Shrimp or chicken
  • Alfredo sauce and/or cream
  • Parmesan/Romano/Asiago cheese
  • Cayenne pepper, Cajun seasoning, basil, lemon pepper, garlic powder, salt, and/or black pepper
  • Parsley
