I needed to use a jar of roasted red peppers, but also needed to make dinner. This was a winning recipe, maybe its because red peppers are sweeter than tomatoes in a sauce, maybe its because we were all starving, either way this is a great recipe for your next pasta meal.
16 oz. Jar Roasted Red Peppers
2 T Brine from jar
2 T Butter
2 Pearl Onions, diced
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning

1 1/4 C Heavy Cream
1/3 C Grated Parmesan
1/2 C Diced Fresh Spinach
