Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo

I received some great news on Monday, my older brother Jason and his girlfriend Shannon are getting married in December. Happily I will be attending even though we are really busy at the restaurant during the winter. I look forward to seeing my family and to enjoy a mini vacation during my hectic schedule.


On to this yummy pasta. I was looking for something really quick and simple. Other than roasting the peppers, which is still quite simple and quick, this took no time to make at all. It would also be great with other vegetables and chicken added.
