    1

    Roast Peppers and Prepare Ingredients

    Stem, seed, and halve red bell peppers. Place peppers skin-side up on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Roast until slightly charred and tender, 20-22 minutes. Replace foil on baking sheet. While peppers roast, mince garlic. Halve baguette lengthwise. Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Crush croutons into coarse crumbs.

    Cook the Pasta

    Make the Garlic Bread

    Combine 1 Tbsp. olive oil and half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce) in a mixing bowl. Spread olive oil-garlic mixture on cut sides of baguette and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 7-9 minutes. While garlic bread bakes, cut peppers into ¼" dice.

Cook until aromatic, 30-60 seconds. Stir in pasta water, cream, tomato paste, and roasted red peppers and any accumulated juices. Cook until thick enough to coat back of a spoon, 2-3 minutes.
