“Shall we have pasta for lunch/ dinner?” is a question that my daughter loves to hear. She likes pasta as much as she does pizza, and it would be a tough decision for her make a choice between the two. For me, cooking pasta usually means a filling and satisfying one-dish meal without having to spend too much time in the kitchen.
Last week, my husband was away on work so it was just the two of us at home. It has been getting pretty warm here and the last thing I wanted to do was spend time in the kitchen. But we were both feeling quite hungry and Akshaya wanted pasta.
Right at the top of vegetable bin in my fridge, were some red bell peppers (capsicum) which I needed to use up as we would be away on a short vacation later in the week. We were not in the mood for anything heavy or with cheese in it, so I came up with this slightly different sauce to serve with the pasta.
