  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 basil leaves

  • salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  4. Remove and peel away the charred skin. Seed the pepper and take off the stems. Set aside.

  12. Once blended, place the sauce back in the skillet over medium heat to thicken. Add the parmesan. Continue to simmer on low heat.
  13. When the sauce has been simmered for a good 10 minutes or so, add noodles.
  14. Toss to coat.
