Good basics but I used 1 each green red and yellow pepper. I added a small can of stewed tomatoes after the peppers and onion sauteed and then tossed the cooked pasta into the same pan to let it absorb the olive oil flavor a bit. Tasted great and heated up well in the microwave the next day. Will make again. Read More

This dish could use more flavor. I added red chili flakes and lots of salt and pepper and I used one each of red yellow and orange bell peppers. I found the pasta itself to be a bit dry (I used whole wheat) so I think next time I'll add some tomatoes or spaghetti sauce. Read More

This a tasty simple pasta dish if you love peppers and onions like we do! I have made this several times and I always add some dried Italian seasoning salt and pepper. Crushed red pepper flakes is great in this too if you prefer some spiciness. I do add more olive oil but that's just personal preference. We love this topped with grated parmesan cheese sometimes I toss some in the vegetable mix as well. Thanks for sharing we really enjoy this:) Read More

This was really good! The second time I made it I added some left over grilled chicken and fresh zucchini. I also added a bit more garlic and used less peppers. One of the best pastas I've ever made and the family loved it! Gotta have the grated parmesan on top though. Read More

Very good & easy. For the noodles I stirred in some garlic dressing then added the sweet peppers. Was a hit! Ooop...I forgot to add some parmesan cheese on top as suggested by one reader. Read More

I thought this was just perfect but Hubs thought it "needed something" (his taste buds must have been shot tonight). It was the perfect accompaniment to "Pork Marsala " also from this site. Normally I would have served the meat with just some pasta aglio e olio but this time I wanted something with a little more pizazz a little more colorful. I didn't measure precisely just cut chopped and added to taste tossing all at the end. Loved it. Read More
