How To Make The Sauce

If you have jarred roasted red peppers, feel free to skip this step. I sliced up 2 large red bell peppers and placed them on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil.

I roasted them in the oven until soft (35-minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit). 

While the peppers were roasting, I also roasted a head of garlic. Just place the garlic in foil with some oil and close it into a tight packet.

Once the garlic and the peppers are done, your sauce is just about ready. Toss in 2 garlic cloves, the entire tray of peppers, extra virgin olive oil, red pepper flakes, sea salt, and black pepper. Puree in the blender until the sauce is mostly smooth.

How To Make The Pasta

To make the Miracle noodles, simply drain them from the pouch and rinse them in water for about a minute. Then, toss them into boiling water for 2-minutes. Strain them again. Then, dry them out by placing them on a dry pan on low-heat for a few minutes. 

You’ll also want to saute the mushrooms and spinach while the peppers and garlic are roasting. Just chop them up and heat them on a medium saute pan for about 10-minutes. Low Carb Pasta_sauteed veggies
