Pasta Side Dish

So what do you do when you're really not in the mood to cook up something fancy? You have some chicken thawed and have no clue what to put with it? Do you have pasta? I always have some type of pasta in my cupboard. That is exactly what happened to me tonight. Here's what I cooked up:

Pasta Side Dish Serves 2
4 oz think spaghetti (Ronzoni Smart Taste)
2 strips Red Bell pepper chopped
1 tbsp red onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
1 tbsp virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp Ground Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp tarragon
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp savory
1/2 tsp Rosemary
1/2 tsp Marjoram
1/2 tsp Crushed chili peppers
Saute chopped veggies in oil and spices. When pasta is done drain and add to the veggie and oil mixture. Toss thoroughly until it's coated evenly. Then serve.
1 cup serving
