12oz / 350g Long Cut Pasta (here I use Linguine)
1 cup / 250ml cup Heavy/Double Cream

Chilli Flakes, to preference (optional)
- Pop your pasta in salted boiling water and cook until al dente.
- Meanwhile, melt your butter in a saucepan and fry your onions until they soften. Add your garlic and fry for a minute or so longer, then place in a blender with your roasted red peppers. Pulse to a smooth consistency.
- Pour back into the pan and keep on a simmer. Add in your cream and stir until completely blended, then add your parmesan, parsley, smoked paprika and seasoning to taste.
- Drain pasta and toss through your sauce until completely coated. Serve with extra parmesan and parsley!
