Penne Pasta(Italian style)

Italian Pasta
Today we are moving back to Italy…There is nothing more to say about Italy than a light Pasta dish and Garlic bread.It is possibly the cutest combinations in food.So today I am posting two recipes don’t forget to check out Garlic bread recipe too...This is a simple pasta dish with lot of colourful vegetables and Olives.I am lucky to get diffrent colours of capsicum here in Lynns,But if you cant find those you could make this dish with the usual green colour capsicum(but please try to get all).Unlike other other pasta it is not dunked with lots of tomato sauce,this is a simple light pasta dish with good olive oil.This recipe is inspired from,But I made little modifications as I do.So give it a go and let me know what you think.
