Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place green and red peppers, cut side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, in a 425 degree F oven about 20 minutes or until skins are charred. Immediately wrap hot peppers in the foil and let stand for 20 to 30 minutes or until cool enough to handle. (The steam will loosen the peel.) Peel off skins and cut peppers into strips.

  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the garlic slices in hot olive oil about 5 minutes or until golden. With a slotted spoon, remove the garlic from skillet; set aside.

  • Drain pasta and place in hot skillet. Add tomato mixture and toss to coat. Heat through. Transfer pasta to a large serving bowl. Garnish with garlic slices; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Makes 4 main-dish servings.
