This Creamy Red Pepper Sauce is the absolute easiest, tastiest, and ready in just two minutes!

Let’s talk about the most important part of this recipe. Every ingredient just goes right into your blender and VOILA! Your sauce is finished!

We’re using jarred roasted red peppers to give this Creamy Red Pepper Sauce incredible flavor! This is one of those products where the ingredient list tends to be short and clean. The brand I buy most often is Mezzetta but there are other great options too. The ingredients in the Mezzetta Roasted Red Peppers are peppers, water, sea salt, and citric salt. That’s it! Plus it’s just so much faster than roasting the red peppers yourself.

How to use this sauce? Add it to everything! Drizzle it over chicken, eggs, burgers, roasted potatoes, zoodles, noodles… literally everything!

Creamy Red Pepper Sauce

This Creamy Red Pepper Sauce is the absolute easiest, tastiest, and ready in just two minutes!


  • 16 oz jarred roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Add everything to a blender. Blend until completely smooth.


This recipe makes two cups of sauce. 
For nutrition information I'm assuming you're using the sauce to drizzle over something so I've estimated 2 tbsp as a serving sauce. If you want to use more sauce (for instance, over zoodles or pasta) you may want to use more but it's easy to calculate the nutrition information. Ex. 1/2 cup of this sauce would be 8 tbsp or 4 of the estimated servings so just take the nutrition information for 1 serving and multiply it by 4.
