BellPepperPasta_Featured1
I was planning to make Avocado Pasta Salad for dinner so I boiled some spaghetti Pasta. On cutting open Avocado I noticed it was  still unripe. So plan changed and this recipe happened because I had already boiled the pasta. I wanted to make something mild, non cheesy and more like a salad. I sautéed some bell peppers and threw in some olives and before I could do further I had my pasta ready , well almost. 🙂

This experimental Pasta Salad was soo delicious and mild with minimum Ingredients. Each flavour could be noticed  separately on your tongue. Its a must try recipe for people who are watching their weight or even for those who want something mild with a bowl of Soup.

Directions:

1. Thinly slice some red bell peppers. You can use any colour of your choice. All I had was red at that moment. Also roughly chop some Parsley leaves. Also cut a lemon in half and keep ready. Take some pitted Olives and cut them into slices.
