This Skinny Red Pepper Alfredo is everything you want in a comfort food, minus all the guilt! It is cheesy, spicy, warm, but with fewer calories!
We have been having the most grey, dreary days in Utah and this recipe was EXACTLY what I needed to warm me up. You can make this dish as spicy or not spicy as you want by adding the right amount of red pepper flakes. The fresh red peppers add a tiny kick, but the spice really comes from the flakes, so adjust accordingly. You can use canned roasted red peppers, but it is SUPER easy to make your own, and I think it tastes so much better! When you are peeling off the skin, you don’t have to get all of it, just try to get most of the skin off, especially the blackened parts. To make this dish even healthier, I used whole wheat pasta, but you can make this with any kind of pasta you like. I think I might try it with some cheese ravioli next time I make it. You can also add chicken or shrimp to this recipe to give it some protein.
