red onions, cut into strips
red bell peppers, chopped
yellow bell pepper, chopped
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.
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.
Tastey yet fast meal for people who work, if I have time I add chicken breast to it.
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 :)
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.
This dish is very easy! But, I added a pound of smoke sauage with peppers in frying pan.
We add sausage to this and it is a 5 star recipe for us!
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.
