Ingredients

  • 2 cups medium-size pasta such as farfalle or penne
  • 1/4 cup cooking water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper seeded and chopped

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta according to package directions, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Drain and set aside.
