Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package.
  2. Turn oven on broil. Once ready, place the poblano pepper on an oven safe pan (like a cookie sheet) and broil until the skin is blistery and charred. This should only take about 5 minutes. You may have to flip it and broil on the other side if it didn’t quite get blistery. Let pepper cool.
  3. While the poblano is cooling, fill a medium sized sauce pan with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, place chopped carrots into the water and boil until softened, about 15 minutes.
  4. When the poblano has cooled, gently peel off charred skin, chop, and place into a large pot along with the olive oil, onion, and garlic. Sauté until the onions are softened and fragrant.
  5. Add softened carrots, tomato sauce, tomato paste and spices to the large pot with the poblano, onions, and garlic. Bring to a slight boil. Once boiling, turn down heat and simmer for 30 minutes. When sauce is done, blend with an immersion blender or tranfer to a blender and blend in order to break up the carrots.
  6. Serve hot over pasta.
