Pasta With Pepperoncini Peppers Sauce Recipe – light, flavorful and delicious, tangy homemade pasta sauce, made with tomatoes, bacon and pepperoncini peppers, served with spaghetti.

Brighten every bite with Mezzetta Peperoncini – this pasta is very easy to make and perfect for summer. The pasta sauce is tangy, with slight heat from the peperoncini peppers. It only takes 30 minutes to prepare and it makes a great, quick, weeknight family dinner.

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again. I struggle with weeknight dinner ideas. The weekends are great – we either make something on the grill or go out.

Weekdays are busy and go by fast. By the time I get some work done, run errands and spend time with my child, it is almost dinner time. And I need to prepare it in between 30 and 60 minutes most of the time.

This is why I love pasta dishes – they cook fast. Even when you make your homemade pasta sauce.

This Pasta With Pepperoncini Peppers Sauce Recipe is the perfect example. It is perfect for a quick dinner year round. I’ve made it 3 times already this month. Just love the taste and how simple to make it is. You can also make the sauce in advance, keep it in the fridge (for up to 3 days) and just add it to cooked pasta  when you’d like.

The pasta sauce is made with canned tomatoes, onions, garlic, bacon, olive oil and Mezzetta Peperoncini peppers. I used the sliced peperoncini peppers variety, because I needed them sliced for the recipe.

The recipe for this Pasta With Pepperoncini Peppers Sauce is adapted from a popular cook book.

This pepperoncini pasta sauce full of flavor. I also used bacon in it, but you can definitely leave it out, if you’d like to keep the pasta vegetarian.

The pickled Mezzetta Peperoncini peppers are a family favorite. I like to snack on them straight from the jar. I add them to salad, sandwiches and top my pizza with them.

Even though these peppers are mild (in my opinion), make sure you don’t use too much, if your family is not used to the heat.

I love taking my simple everyday recipes to crave worthy with Mezzatta Peperoncini.
