Here's what you'll need:
10 oz. dried fettuccine (I used spaghetti.)
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup half and half
3/4 cup chopped bottled roasted red peppers
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Salt and black pepper to taste
First, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (should be about 30 seconds to 1 minute less than the package instructions recommend).
While that's cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute, until the two are fully incorporated.
Slowly add the milk and half and half, whisking to help prevent lumps from forming. Add the red pepper and garlic. Turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
