Pasta As A Simple Lunch


It was already 12.30 y'day afternoon and i had to prepare something lunch .I was alone at home and feeling very hungry .Since i was cleaning my home i could not cook anything for my self .Time is running and i was deadly hungry .Just ran thru the pantry and i found that i had pasta shells in hand and pasta sauce.As they are very simple and easy to make i decided to have them .But no cheese with me ..Its ok ....Cheese is not so important for me ..that is fine ...I can eat with out cheese ...It was so very simple and easy to make that i decided to share it with all of you .So here how it goes....

Raw Materials Required

3 handful of pasta shells (large one ).
1/2 cup- pasta sauce (store bought)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1/2 capsicum (chopped)
1 tsp pepper
3 ts olive oil

Preparation Style

In a small bowl boil the paste until they change to white color .Then drain the water and keep the pasta aside.Then in the same bowl pour the oil and add onions to it .Saute them and add the green capsicum to it .Just allow it cook for 5 mts .Then add the pasta sauce to it .Allow it to boil and add the shells to it .Then add pepper and stir them well .Serve it hot ....

I did not use any kind of cheese .Just simple and tasty ..Was great ..We can also add orange , red or yellow capsicum to it ...

This would be my entry for "N" Simple Cooking and also Nupur "Letter - P" from One Hot Stove .
