Fusilli with Bell Peppers and Onions

Oh...this is so.... good!  Yet another vegetarian meal that is easy and budget conscious! Remember, if you have wheat allergies try a rice pasta.  They are surprisingly good! 

3 red and yellow peppers
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 large red onion, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound pasta (I used Fusilli)
3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
Grate Parmesan cheese on top to serve


1) Place the bell peppers in a broiler until they are blackened.  Remove and put in a plastic bag for 5 to 7 minutes. 
2) Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onion.  Cook until softened but not brown, 5-8 minutes. Place the garlic in and stir to mix together.
3) Return back to the bell peppers.  Take them out of the plastic bag, peel them and cut then into thin strips and add them to the onion mixture.
4) Meanwhile, have a pot of boiling water for the pasta.  Cook according to the directions on the box.  Before draining take 1/4 cup of the pasta water and mix into the onion and bell pepper mixture.  Season the mixture with salt and pepper, add parsley then mix in the drained pasta.  Before serving add as much grated Parmesan as you like.  Enjoy!
