Red and Yellow Pepper Sweet Potato Pappardelle

Serving Size: 4-6

Ingredients:

1 lb. Pappardelle's Sweet Potato Pappardelle
2 tablespoons Bella Sol California Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 large yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped
1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar, or lemon juice
Salt to taste
Crumbled goat cheese

Instructions: 

  1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until al dente (about 10-12 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, place 1 tablespoon oil and garlic in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is sizzling and fragrant, 2 to 5 minutes. Add red and yellow bell peppers, tomatoes, and water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bell pepper is tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat; cover and keep warm.
  3. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the pot. Add the vegetable mixture, the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, parsley, tarragon, vinegar (or lemon juice), salt and cheese; toss to combine. Add the reserved pasta water, 2 tablespoons at a time, to achieve the desired consistency.
