Pasta with Peppers and Onions

A plate of pasta with peppers and onions

So you're finally home after working all day, and you realize that you really haven't thought about dinner. Tonight is your meatless night or maybe you're a vegetarian.

This is a great recipe that my wife whips up in no time at all. Well, it does take her a little time, but it could go even faster if I help.

Spaghetti with fresh bell peppers and onions is a nice, easy light meal unless you eat the whole pound of spaghetti. There are so many variations to this, you could use whatever vegetables that you like.

I prefer the fresh peppers and onions because the peppers are so sweet and have such an amazing flavor. I like to top it off with some fresh ground black pepper and just a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, just for a little extra kick.

  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 glove Garlic
  • 1/2 Medium Onion
  • Olive Oil
  1. Add olive oil to a 12" fry pan, enough to cover the bottom
  2. Mince or finely chop the garlic
  3. Slice your peppers and onions into strips
  4. Saute over medium heat until peppers are tender
  5. Cook and drain your spaghetti
  6. Pour the sauteed peppers and onions over your spaghetti, toss, and serve 

As always Thanks for stopping by and I hope you Enjoy!!

    1. Kevin and Kim, You're welcome, I found it very helpful. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. It sounds very good, and very simple as well - in fact, what drew me here is that my hubby is making a very simple pasta dish today (meatless) and I was curious about a pasta with onions - yum.

    1. Hi Barbara, It is so simple to make, and the peppers really give it a wonderful flavor. Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you enjoy :)

  3. Yummy! I have not made pasta like this with bell peppers only. I mostly put meat on it. This is also good for those who don´t eat meat. Thanks for sharing Sam.

    1. I agree this is a good one for a meatless day, and the red peppers add so much flavor. Thanks Thelma :)

  4. Sounds delish, Sam. Can I add a couple more garlic cloves though :)

    1. I always say the more garlic the better! Thanks Susan for stopping by :)

  5. Will make for sure! Good side dish for my salmon. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Rebecca, what a great idea as a side dish fr your salmon.
