Nice sauce. I doubled it but cut the pepper was enough for us...I'll make this again

This was quite good, and so easy. I used just a sprinkle of salt and whole wheat penne (personal preference).

Nice and easy weeknight meal. The flavors are really fresh and bright. I used rotini a my choice of pasta, only because I felt it would hold the sauce better. Delicious. :)
