Sweet Pepper, Basil and Cream Sauce

Sonia Cabano gave us a copy of her new book “Relish – Easy sauces, seasonings and condiments to make at home” recently and we have to share one of the recipes for pasta with you. We haven’t made it yet, but will definitely… soon. We quote:
For 300-450g dried pasta, enough to serve 4-6 people, use:
2 medium onions, finely chopped – 2T 30ml butter (1T = 15ml) - 15ml olive oil – 2 each medium green, red and yellow sweet peppers, chopped small – salt and ground black pepper to taste – 150ml double cream – 6 large basil leaves, finely chopped – 2 T (30ml) chopped fresh parsley – 4 T (60ml) freshly grated parmesan
  1. Cook the onions in the butter and olive oil until golden and soft
  2. Add the diced peppers and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season very well
  3. Add the cream, turn the heat high and allow to bubble until the cream as reduced by half
  4. Add the basil, parsley and Parmesan and toss with hot cooked pasta
Serve immediately
