Turkey Penne with Roasted Red Pep­per Sauce

Clean Eating - - CONTENTS -

SERVES HANDS-ON TIME: 30 MIN­UTES. TO­TAL TIME: 40 MIN­UTES.

Sweet and ten­der frozen

pe­tite peas, or baby peas, give

our Bolog­nese-style sauce a

burst of color and fresh­ness.

Mak­ing your own sauce from

sim­ple pantry in­gre­di­ents,

such as jarred pep­pers, canned

toma­toes and dried herbs, is

a great money-sav­ing trick.

Cus­tom­ize it to your taste by

play­ing around with dif­fer­ent

herbs and spices.

un­salted diced toma­toes
