This mouthwatering pasta dish will make your taste buds tingle with tons of garlicky flavor combined with zesty chipotle chilies cooked together with onions, bell peppers and Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Fine Cut to create a light yet substantial sauce that’s tossed with al dente-cooked linguine pasta.

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large or 2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1 jar (12 oz.) roasted red peppers, drained, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. linguine pasta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Fine Cut, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. minced drained chipotle chilies in adobo sauce*
  1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add onions and bell peppers; cook, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and beginning to brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in sherry, roasted red peppers and garlic. Simmer until liquid evaporates, 4 to 5 minutes. Mix cheese and chipotle chilies.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup cooking liquid. Return pasta to pot. Add half of cheese mixture, pepper mixture, parsley, vinegar and reserved 1/4 cup cooking liquid; toss well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide among bowls. Top with remaining cheese mixture.
