From The Perfect Pantry http://www.theperfectpantry.com This recipe comes together in the time it takes to cook the pasta, which can be any shape from rotini to spaghetti. You can make the pesto days ahead, and refrigerate or freeze it. Add some cooked shrimp or canned white beans or sharp kalamata olives (or all three) at the end, for a nice variation. Serves 6-8.

Recipe Ingredients for Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

1 lb penne (or pasta of your choice)
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 c walnuts
12 oz roasted red peppers
2 T fresh parsley leaves
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
3 pieces sun dried tomatoes
15 oz great northern beans

Recipe Directions for Roasted Red Pepper Pasta

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, and cook pasta according to package directions.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, toast the pine nuts in a dry nonstick frying pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, shaking or stirring frequently, until the nuts are just lightly browned. Add the nuts to the food processor, along with all remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. (Can be made ahead.)

  3. Drain the pasta, but do not rinse. Add to a large bowl with as much of the pesto as you like to coat the pasta, and stir to combine. Garnish with reserved parsley leaves. Serve hot or at room temperature.
