2 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 medium red bell peppers (or two jarred roasted red peppers)

Directions:
Directions:
Begin by roasting the peppers. If you have a gas stove, place them on top of a burner and turn it on. Use tongs to turn the peppers until they are charred and black on all sides. If you donít have a gas stove, place them under your broiler and turn frequently until they are charred and black on all sides. Place them in a large bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Let them sit and steam for around 10 minutes. Carefully remove the plastic wrap and use a paper towel to rub off as much of the skin as possible. Cut them open and remove the seeds and ribs. Dice the peppers.

Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 more minutes. Add the peppers, broth, cream and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the mixture is slightly thickened. Use an immersion blender to puree the sauce until itís smooth. If using a regular blender, remember to vent it when blending.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain well and toss with sauce until thoroughly coated.
