Fettuccine with Cayenne Sweet Pepper Sauce

I was looking at the recipe cards at the grocery store, and I thought this sounded good. :) I love finding fun new recipes. I did a little tweaking and served it for dinner tonight. It was tasty. It had a great mixture of flavors. You could add other vegetables to it. I tried the sauce on brown rice and really liked it too.

12 oz dry fettuccine pasta (You could put it on brown rice)
2 red peppers julienned
4 garlic cloves minced
1/2 white onion thinly sliced
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 C plain yogurt and 1/4 C kefir or 1 C sour cream or 1 C plain yogurt
3/4 C water
2 tsp thyme
3/4 C grated Parmesan
salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta, cook until al dente, then drain.

2. While that is cooking, spray a frying pan with non stick oil, and saute peppers, garlic, onion and cayenne.

3. Cook on me. heat for 5 min. Stir in yogurt mixture, water, thyme. Simmer uncovered for 5 min.

4. Take off the heat and add the cheese, stir until all mixed in.

5. Either pour the sauce over the noodles or mix the sauce into the noodles. (Or brown rice)
