admin's picture
  Sweet peppers 3 Large, cored, seeded, and cut into thin strip (Preferably 1 Each Of Green, Red, And Yellow)
  Penne 8 Ounce
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Large, thinly sliced
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Shredded mozzarella cheese 8 Ounce (2 Cups)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)

Place the peppers in a heatproof colander, lower into a large kettle of boiling water, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
Raise the colander to allow the peppers to drain, then transfer the peppers to paper toweling or place the peppers in a vegetable steamer, cover, and steam for 8 minutes, then drain them on paper toweling.
Return the water in the kettle to a boil, add the penne, and cook according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat for 1 minute.
Add the onion, drained peppers, oregano, basil, salt, and black pepper, and saute, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the onion is limp.
Add the garlic and saute, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes more.
Drain the penne and return to the kettle.
Add the mozzarella cheese, toss lightly, and cover for 1 minute, so that the cheese melts and coats the penne.
Add the skillet mixture to the pasta and toss lightly.
Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
