    Starrynews's Note:

    A delicious pasta dish, with lots of flavor. It has a bit of a kick to it, so you may want to adjust red pepper flakes and chili peppers, to taste, if needed. I received this from a friend at my bridal shower. Note that the time needed to cook is dependent upon how thick you like your sauce, which affects the simmering time.

    1. 1
      Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, and salt until tender, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Stir in red pepper flakes and bell pepper, and cook for about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add wine and reduce, scraping up any bits on the bottom of the pan and mixing them inches.
    4. 4
      Pour in crushed tomatoes and juice, pepper, sun-dried tomato pesto or puree, and the optional tomato paste, if desired.
    5. 5
      Bring sauce to a boil, add the whole red chili peppers, and reduce to a simmer.
    6. 6
      Stir occasionally, until sauce has reduced to desired thickness. I usually simmer about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, prepare penne according to package directions.
    8. 8
      Remove chili peppers from sauce when ready, and stir in half of the basil and parsley.
    9. 9
      Spoon sauce over top of pasta to serve, and garnish with remaining basil, parsley, and fresh Parmesan.

      I used Christophers Ranch sun dried pesto. Home grown tomatoes in place of the canned ones. Made for Oct veggie tag. Quick and easy. Tasty good! Thanks.
