Roasted Red Pepper Fettuccine in Pink Sauce and Homemade Garlic Bread!

This pasta turned out better than my husband or I expected. I started out to make the traditional fettuccine alfredo but then thought of sprucing things up. So, in place of the alfredo sauce, I made a pink sauce by marrying the alfredo with marinara and blessing it with a dash of hot sauce. The final product turned out absolutely yum, creamy yet tangy and was much better than the boring marinara-spaghetti or fettuccine-alfredo. Hope you all like it as much as hubby and I did. Without much ado, here goes the recipe to this spring-y pasta that I made with stir fry veggies and a few other things.

Fettuccine pasta - cooked according to the box instructions - 1/2 pk
Peas - frozen or fresh, boiled - 1/4 c
Broccoli florets - blanched - 1/4 c
Bell peppers - red/yellow/green - diced - 1/4 c
Onions - diced - 1/4 c
(Alternatively, you can get a frozen stir fry veggies pack and use a cup of that)
Olive oil for sauteeing
Parsley - 1 tbsn

For the sauce:
marinara - 1/2 c
alfredo - 1/3 c
hot sauce - 1 tbsn

In a big pan, saute the veggies in oil and remove. In the same pan, add the ingredients for the sauce and let cook for a few minutes. Toss in the veggies, mix well and add the pasta. Switch off the heat, serve with some parsley sprinkled over and garlic bread!
