This is one of my favorite pasta dishes & one I think you will enjoy. I like to use Whole Wheat pasta as I feel it gives more of a bite and is healthier. :-)

This was very good. I used red and green peppers and just a pinch of the sugar. Very easy to make. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
