Brain Food from @kleffnotes: Roasted Red Pepper Brains ( @CWiZombie @iZombieWriters )

I may not be a gourmet brain chef, but I can throw together a pretty tasty brainy meal when I want to. While grocery shopping I suddenly came up with a three ingredient recipe while in the pasta aisle. I present to you Roasted Red Pepper Brains.


16 oz jar roasted red peppers

14.5 oz jar alfredo sauce

17.6 oz bag gnocchi (really any amount will work)

Open red peppers and pour out half of the oil

Then put in blender and puree

Bring a pot of water to boil

Add all gnocchi and wait for them to rise to the top

Immediately remove from the water once they float with some form of spoon and put them in a separate bowl

Once all gnocchi is out remove pot from boiler and turn off

In a large sauce pan combine alfredo and pureed peppers

Turn burner on low/medium and stir frequently

Once sauce is heated add gnocchi and stir together with burner on

After a couple of minutes turn of burner

Serve heated and with any additional garnish you would like


I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty this easy recipe was. The sauce was really tasty and I didn’t have to add any extra seasoning, which was a huge plus.
