Pasta alla Amanda

My friend Amanda is a great cook and always makes it look easy. She threw together this pasta the other night and I loved it. Typical Colleen, I'm making it tomorrow night. I'd make it tonight but I'm missing some ingredients.

She used Lagana Foods fresh pasta which is great. You can buy it at Delaurenti, Whole Foods and other stores around the Seattle area.

Pasta alla Amanda

Lagana Foods Campanelle pasta
Yellow onion

Red pepper
Yellow pepper
Orange pepper
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar

Salt & pepper
Parmesan, freshly grated
Feta, optional

Preheat oven to 350.

Slice the peppers and onion into thin strips (maybe 3/4"-1"). Toss with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so they don't burn.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. When veggies are done roasting, season water with salt and cook noodles. Sprinkle veggies with lots of freshly grated parmesan. When noodles are done, drain and toss with the peppers and onion mixture. Add more balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with feta and serve.
