That's what it's called because it's that awesome. I really love it with pumpkin ravioli. It would probably be good with butternut squash, chicken and proscuitto, or mushroom fillings too. Earthier flavors.
This is not a sauce, it's a topping to go on TOP of the pasta after it's cooked.
This is a recipe for one. But you all know how to multiply :)
1 dipping strip red bell pepper
1 clove garlic
2T olive oil
1/2t- 1t brown sugar
1. Finely mince pepper, garlic, and onion (food processor works well)
2. Heat up olive oil in small non-stick pan, add pepper/garlic/onion mixture, pinch of salt, a sprinkling of thyme, 1/2 t. of cinnamon. Start heat on pasta at this time. Let saute over medium/low heat until water boils.
3. When water boils add brown sugar to mix. Let mixture saute until FRESH pasta is finished cooking (2-3 minutes).
4. Drain pasta, spoon topping on pasta, (if making for more than one, put pasta on individual plates and spoon topping individually).
