Pasta with Peppers and Sundried Tomatoes

My mom created this dish when I was in college and it's been a family favorite since! It is so simple and so flavorful. Pair with a delicious bottle of red wine and you've got a beautiful dinner!

Serves 2


1/2 box bucatini pasta (can use angel hair but bucatini is my fav for this dish)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, rinsed and cut into 1/2" thick squares
1/2 yellow bell pepper, " " "
1/2 orange bell pepper, " " "
1/2 cup Sundried tomatoes
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp crushed red pepper
Salt & pepper
Fresh shaved Parmesan cheese, to serve on top


Cook pasta according to package instructions.  In a large pan, simmer peppers, sundried tomatoes, crushed red pepper and salt and pepper in olive oil over low heat. When  peppers are tender, add garlic and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Toss pasta in oil and peppers and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
