You can never have enough easy weeknight meals ideas and this Quick Roasted Red Pepper sauce will be one to keep in your arsenal for years.  Great for any time of the year but particularly those cold nights when you want a warm meal but don’t want to spend time slaving over the stove.  Big flavors come from already roasted jarred peppers and just a bit of smoky paprika.  And our Collagen Peptides dissolve seamlessly into the sauce for a quick addition of filling protein.
