I am not a huge fan of pasta but I eat it occasionally .My husband and kid likes it so much that forced me to try this recipe at home. It is very simple but really very easy to make and is ready in 20 minutes.If you don't get the colored peppers you can add sweet corn kernels and diced carrots. I dint have olive oil or cheese at home when I made this. Still the results were superb.The dried herbs are a must for a real pasta flavor.
