| Often times you'll walk into an Italian restaurant and be offered a white sauce, or a red sauce. You can order a pizza and have it red or white. Certainly "red" is the more common variety in these instances, but white is just as tasty!|
I'm here to tell you that the world isn't always so red and white. There are always going to be shades of pink.
Welcome to one of my personal favorites! This is a WONDERFUL accompaniment to pasta, zoodles, poured over a chicken breast, drizzled onto a bowl of buttered cauliflower, etc. It's got some pink from the tomatoes, as well as the slightly sweet roasted peppers. It's also got a little texture and smoky flavor coming from the bacon bits. Finally, there are the little speckles of fresh basil, to tie the whole thing together.
It's also INCREDIBLY fast to make; a perfect pairing with a plethora of meal ideas. Give it a shot!
Note: Reduced cream-based sauces tend to form a skin almost immediately. As a result, the photos aren't as "pink" as the sauce really was. Bear in mind ... the skin is delicious! :)
