What i love about pasta is that it tastes yummy how ever you make it. You can make it the authentic Italian way or indianise it a lil with some sprigs of cilantro.Or make it any way you like. A friend even makes it with cumin powder and garam masala and the pasta tastes delicious. This recipe is something that i ve created on a whim. No references or adaptations. Give it a try and let me know if you all enjoyed it.

( This tastes good only with penne or bow ties. You can add a tomato too if you desire. I ve made it both the ways and both taste equally heavenly.You can adjust the spice level as you wish. And dont attempt any pasta with any other oil other than olive oil.)
What You Need?
Pasta Bow ties or penne 1.5cups
Bell peppers(red, green&yellow)
-finely chopped 1 cup

How To Make It?
Bring to boil about 2 litres of water with salt and once the water begins bubbling up, add the pasta and cook for 25 mins.
Check if the pasta has cooked and then drain the water and set aside.
Heat a wok and add the garlic and onions. Saute till light brown.
Now, add the bell peppers and saute till the skin on the bell peppers wilts.
Now, add the chili flakes, salt and italian seasoning.
Saute for about 3 mins. This is to incorporate the flavors into the veggies well.
