I’ve seen a couple of recipes almost like this and none of them use smoked paprika. For me, smoked paprika is what takes this recipe to new levels. The way that smokey twang enhances the roasted char from the peppers is nearly an excessive amount of to reveal .

Cream and garlic is already a match made in heaven, but when combined with parsley, parmesan and butter it just makes such a lot sense. Sure, 5-ingredient pasta has more of a hoop thereto , but every ingredient during this recipe is adding something special to the dish which ends up in something truly quite special.

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta


  • 16oz / 460g Jar of Roasted Red Peppers (See Note A)
  • 12oz / 350g Long Cut Pasta (here I use Linguine)
  • 1 cup / 250ml cup Heavy/Double Cream
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 medium-large White Onion, diced
  • 2 small cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup / 50g cup (50g) Parmesan, finely grated (save some for serving)
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Parsley, plus extra to serve
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Chilli Flakes, to preference (optional)


  1. Pop your pasta in salted boiling water and cook until al dente.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Drain pasta and toss through your sauce until completely coated. Serve with extra parmesan and parsley!
