It's not often I'm this impressed when I try a new recipe. I often rate the recipes I try highly, with five stars, but it's difficult to differentiate when something I try is even better than that. This one is. I was tempted to used roasted red peppers for this, thinking the fresh red bell peppers wouldn’t provide enough flavor. Wrong. I added some fresh minced garlic for complexity and depth but other than that I didn’t deviate from the recipe and, other than adding salt and pepper, won’t the next time I make this either. Interestingly, it was equally as delicious without the sour cream as it was with it. I served this with “Simply Parmesan Chicken,” recipe also from this site, and linguine, but the possibilities for using this are endless.

I was pleasantly surprised by this sauce. The only change I made was adding 3 cloves of garlic (I may add more next time). Once the sauce was pureed, I poured it back into the pan and tossed in some cooked jumbo shrimp for two or three minutes and served it over rice with a side of steamed green beans. This was a nice change from the usual cream sauces and not as heavy.

This was great! As recommended, I added 3 cloves of garlic and did not have sour cream so used dairy cream instead and it was wondeful! I served over white fish and it was a big hit at dinner last night.
