Pioneer Woman's Roasted Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

I love this woman - no not in that way... but there's nothing wrong with that... but I gotta say, her blog is amazing! (Who's backing it and how do I get in?) And is it wrong to send people to other people's blogs? Just saying - The Prairie Woman is a lot of fun and I really liked my first recipe from her site. (photo - Ree Drummond)
I tried her Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce when a friend backed out of dinner plans. While Ree made everything from scratch - I used what I had in the fridge: a jar of roasted red peppers, some roasted almonds (yes, I like them cold), goat's cheese, rice noodles and chili flakes (from the pantry). Her rendition is probably better, but this worked in a pinch and tasted really good on a rainy evening.
All I did was follow her directions, but blended the jarred roasted red pepper with the almond in a food processer (no need for extra salt), added chili flakes to the onions and garlic, and goats cheese (with wine and milk) instead of cream. I'm still wheat free so I used rice noodles.
Taaa dah - and it only took 15-20 minutes until dinner was served.
~ Enjoy!
