I got this recipe from a gourmet magazine. It makes a nice change from the usual pasta sauces.

Lovely Mediterranean flavours in this tasty and easy pasta sauce, and the pickled peppers added a nice 'bite'. I used spaghettini, and after cooking it to the al dente stage, drained it, added a slurp of olive oil and 2 to 3 tablespoons of the sauce, and mixed it well together. I then divided the spaghettini into 4 pasta bowls and served the remaining sauce over each portion. Thanks for a yummy recipe which will become a favourite in our household.
