For the main course, Minoo and Mona made Fettuccine with Roasted Pepper and Sun Dried Tomato Sauce in the South Arm Cooking Club for seniors. This is kind of a vegetarian pasta dish.

    hi Suanne,
    This recipe looks great! and the photos are fantastic. I plan to try it this weekend.

    When do you add the garlic to this dish? also, what is the purpose of the jar with the word “Mozzetta” in front of it?

    thanks again,

    Dandel

      Hi Dandel, the garlic is roasted together with the onion and red peppers. The jar with the word “Mozzetta” is actually sun-dried tomatoes in oil. Minoo brought two different types of sun-dried tomatoes, one dried and another in oil just to show the members.

    Hi Suanne

    thanks so much for this recipe. I made it tonight and loved its heartiness on a cold night, and it is so great that it is all vegeterian.
