Roasted Red Peppers

If you have a gas stove at home, this is easy.  If you don't, you can always buy roasted red peppers at the grocery store.  If you are someone with a gas stove, just place your red pepper on the burner and turn as the sides start to char - or turn black.

Don't let it catch on fire!

Once it's nice and roasted, you can peel off the skin and remove the seeds.

Set the peppers aside for the next step

Almonds, Parsley, Garlic, Smoked Paprika, Tomato Paste, Sherry Vinegar & Olive Oil

Before your start this, get a pot of water boiling for your ravioli and following the cooking instructions on the back of the pack.

Now, after you've roasted, peeled, and gutted your red pepper, add it to a food processor with 3/4 cup almonds, 1 tbls parsley, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 cup tomato paste, 2 tbls Sherry Vinegar, 1/2 cup olive (do this last) and blend away!

If you need to, you can add some water to loosen the sauce.
