What a lovely sight the Spring Onion and Red Capsicum Pasta is, with contrasting shades of red, yellow and green decorating perfectly cooked penne! Best of all, the lively flavour of this Italian delicacy more than meets the expectations that arise in your mind when you behold the pretty sight. This pasta dish is flavoured with veggies, herbs and spices sautéed in olive oil. This gives you the peppy flavour and enticing aroma quite quickly, without having to go through the added effort of preparing a tomato or white sauce.
