Spicy Red Pepper Arrabbiata sauce with Mafalda Pasta!

This meal was so easy to create you can make it in a flash!

  Pasta sauce can be one of the easiest meals to make and you can go from stove to table in no time.  Using a can of spicy red pepper tomatoes this Arrabbiata sauce with Mafalda Pasta was created.   I used Mafalda pasta as the pasta tonight.(small curly pieces of pasta)

1 box pasta of choice
1-15 oz. can spicy red pepper tomatoes (Hunt's)
1-15 oz. can Hunts sauce
1 can water
1 cup sliced mixed peppers (or you can use all green if that's all you have)
1 small onion sliced thin
2 or 3 minced garlic cloves
salt to taste
canola or olive oil (few Tablespoons)

In a medium size pot saute peppers in oil with sliced onion until slightly tender.  Add garlic and saute a few minutes more. Add tomatoes, water and tomato sauce.  Cook until peppers are tender approx. 30 minutes.  

While sauce is cooking.  Cook pasta according to directions making sure not to overcook. Drain well and top with above sauce and a little grated Pecorino Romano Italian cheese.  Excellent quick dinner. Yummy!

Note:  Separately I pan fried(with a little water or olive oil) 2 Chicken sausage links and served it with the pasta. 

This was our easy dessert!

  All you need is a store bought angel food cake and strawberries.   I keep a can of Reddi Whip for quick desserts.
