LOW CARB Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

This sauce is good with pasta or chicken dishes or a dish that combines the two with low-carb noodles. (You could also try to add a bit of heat such as garlic, onion & maybe red pepper flake)

Ingredients:

  • 3 roasted red peppers - canned or fresh-roasted (if canned, rinse if there is sugar added)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream (add a little more if needed for consistency)
  • 1 teaspoon mild powdered chile, such as ancho, or paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder or smoked paprika or cayenne to taste
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt if needed

Preparation:

Put ingredients in food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Heat before serving, in saucepan or microwave.

Make approximately 2 1/2 cups of sauce. Each 1/2 cup would have approximately 3 grams effective carbohydrate plus 1 gram fiber, 1 gram protein, and 177 calories.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
