Linguine with Red Pepper Sauce

Linguine with Red Pepper Sauce

The natural sweetness of red bell peppers, balsamic vinegar, and fresh basil adds flair to the thick, rich sauce that tops this pasta. We liked this recipe so much that as soon as we tasted it, we jotted it down to slip into our own files.
