Ah cheese, the king of my heart, the reason I get up in the morning (ok, not quite). Is there anything better than a cheesy dinner to make you feel better when you’re having a hard day?

It tastes great with Mexican food like this cheesy Mexican rice and vegetable tortilla stew, on top of baked meatball sandwiches and of course in veggie loaded gnocchi bakes. This cheesy roasted red pepper one pot pasta is one of my faves though.

You need roasted peppers for this recipe. I roasted some before I made this which does add a bit of time to the recipe but you could easily use jarred ones.

Throw them in a pot with the pasta, some onion, garlic, chicken stock and chopped tomatoes and let it simmer away for 12 minutes.

Stir in some cream cheese and a little double cream and you’ll have a gorgeous creamy cheesy sauce. Make sure you top the whole thing with lots of black pepper (and I mean lots) and plenty of chopped fresh basil. Heaven!

    Am I missing something? The directions mention double cream but the ingredients dont mention it. Regardless, I am going to make this tonight because it looks awesome and I have the cream. I will figure out how much to put in.
    Thanks for a great one-pot meal!

      Hi Teri,

      Sorry about that! The double cream was in the original recipe but I edited it out of the ingredients when I made it a second time because I decided it wasn’t completely necessary.

      I’ve added it back into the ingredients as optional. I hope you enjoyed the recipe!

    What size jar of roasted red peppers did you use? Somehow I think my massive bulk jar may be too many (if there is such a thing as too many roasted red peppers haha). Can’t wait to try, looks great!

    I’m with you, lady – one pot pasta meals are my jam! This one looks delicious – I’m loving those roasted red peppers, and bet they add a ton of great flavor! Glad to know the cream isn’t really necessary, too. Might as well save a calorie or two where possible! 🙂

    Hi Amy, what kind of pot do you use for your one pot dishes? I have a Le Creuset ceramic casserole dish but I understand you can’t use them on gas hobs. What would you suggest?

    Thanks!

      Hi Heather!

      Hmm, I have a gas hob and I use a big ceramic casserole dish on there with no problems but it’s not a Le Creuset, there may be different guidelines for them.

      Otherwise, I have used a big metal saucepan for them and they work just as well.

      Hope that helps 🙂

    I made this tonight & it was delicious. I didn’t have enough roasted red peppers, so made up the amount with chopped fresh red pepper. I also didn’t have any cream cheese or heavy (whipping/35%) cream, but used crumbled feta for the cream cheese & substituted half & half for the heavy cream. The result was great – nice & creamy & with lots of flavour. I’ve never made a one-pot pasta dish. How convenient & quick. Have added this to my recipe file & will definitely make again. I might add some chopped spinach or Swiss chard – I’m always trying to get in extra veggies. Thanks for this great recipe.
