Roasted Red Pepper and Bacon Sauce
A unique take on red sauce that doesn't need to rely on meat for flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
Roasted peppers are the heart of this Roasted Red Pepper and Bacon Sauce, and jarred peppers made quick work of preparation. They tasted nearly as good as fresh-roasted peppers, as long as we rinsed them well to remove any traces of the brine in which they come packed. Cooking the sauce’s aromatics—onion and garlic—in rendered fat from the bacon intensified the smokiness of the sauce.
