This is one of our favorite pasta I often do at home. So healthy and easy to make and you can get different flavors from garlic and herbs, crunchiness from bell peppers, mild sweet taste from cherry tomato and off course no cheese no pasta. But it does not mean it has loads of cheese just for topping. Sure it will satisfy your taste buds. Here goes the recipe..

Ingredients :

Pasta of any shape - 2 cup(whole wheat)
Garlic pod - 7 grated
Bell peppers - all colors except green 2 cups or more
Shallots - 6
Cherry tomato - 2 cups (whole)
Italian mixed dry herbs - 2 tsp
Chilli flakes as required
Basil chopped - 3 tbsp
Salt as required
Parmesan cheese grated for topping
Olive oil

Method :

1. Add the pasta in the boiling water with some salt let it cook.
2. Meanwhile heat olive oil in the frying pan, add the garlic shallots and saute till golden brown.
3. Add the grated garlic and red chilli saute till lightly brown.
4. Add the cherry tomato it gets warm and starts bursting , at that time add the bell peppers.
5. Saute till the moisture are absorbed. Now check for the pasta and if it is cooked add to this mixture and add the dried herbs and chopped basil.
6. Toss well and serve it in bowl or plate and top it with grated cheese.
7. Garnish with parsely.
