Spiralized Red Bell Peppers with Sundried Tomato Cream Sauce and Andouille Sausage Recipe

Currently, I’m gathering all of our various sauce recipes and I’m going to make a recipe category for “Sauces & Dressings.”

There are just so many great ones that are so versatile, that I felt that it warranted it’s own category.

Take this sundried tomato cream sauce for instance. I’d take out the broth and use it as a tapenade and spread it on toast, I’d use it with other spiralized veggies as a pasta sauce OR I’d even thin it out with more vegetable broth and use it as a dressing for salads.

I’ve been asked “what sauces go best with which spiralized veggies?” and I’m working on a little infographic that explains all of that.

For instance, chunky sauces work best with tougher spiralized veggies, like beets, while thin sauces work best with lighter veggies, such as kohlrabi.

There are just so many different ways you can enjoy each of my recipes, and I want to give you those options! If you have the Inspiralized cookbook, then you already know that there’s a feature on each recipe that says “Also works well with” that lists other spiralized veggies that would make a great substitute.

I’m really loving the spicy flavors of this andouille sausage with the richness of this sundried tomato sauce. The al dente red bell pepper noodles are the perfect way to enjoy this combination.

I hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday and if you meal plan, you’ll want to add this to the rotation. If you don’t like meat, use butter beans or lentils. If you don’t like red meat, try chicken!

I can see the recipe but the rest of the post is just random letters. Hopefully it is just my server.

It's messed up for me, too.
annie says:
Ali, This looks great, but I have been avoiding coconut - I find it sits in my stomach like a ton of bricks, especially coconut flour. Do you think I could sub something else for the coconut creme? Like soaked cashews or something? Any ideas?
Ali Maffucci says:
Soaked cashews would work well here, yes!

I had to turn my Kindle sideways and that worked to see the screen. I forgot Saturday but this week I'll let members know you have WW points maybe I'll take one of your recipes--we do share recipes.
Mary says:
Any ideas on what to do with the left over coconut milk?
Ali Maffucci says:
Save it and use it for other sauces, like this dish: https://inspiralized.com/2015/10/13/chicken-paprikash-with-spiralized-onions-and-bell-peppers/
Laura says:
Looks great...but you didn't mention when to add the broth. Would that be at the time you add the tomatoes, coconut cream, et al? Tx
Ali Maffucci says:
I updated the recipe, thanks for catching that!

annie says:
Update: (This is epic!).. I made this tonight exactly as written. My husband of 27 years said " This is possibly the best thing you've ever made. I could eat this every night". Nuf said.
Ali Maffucci says:
Awww !!! That makes me so happy!!! Thanks for leaving this comment :)
Aly says:
Hi, I plan to make this tomorrow. For the coconut, do you use coconut milk or coconut cream? I actually have "cream of coconut" at home, but am not sure that is the correct thing to use. TIA!

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
