Penne with Yellow Peppers and Tomatoes

  • SERVINGS: 4 TO 6
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  3. 2 large yellow bell peppers—quartered, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise
  4. One 35-ounce can Italian peeled tomatoes, drained and chopped
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 pound penne
  7. Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, for serving
  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over low heat until golden, about 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook over moderate heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  2. Cook the penne in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain the penne and return it to the pot. Add the sauce to the pasta along with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a warmed bowl. Serve at once, passing the cheese separately.

Suggested Pairing

The sweet yellow peppers and tart tomato sauce in this simple pasta dish need the contrast of a crisp white with some herbal character. Consider a California Sauvignon Blanc.
