Whole Grain Pasta with Fresh Peppers

Introduction

A simple dinner I threw together using the ingredients I already had at home! This is super easy and real quick, done in less than 30 minutes start to finish!

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1.5 c whole grain pasta (spaghetti)
    1.5 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 medium onion, diced
    half green bell pepper, sliced
    half red bell pepper, sliced
    1/2 garlic clove
    1/4 c cooking wine
    1c fresh spinach (about 2 handfuls)
    1 tbsp walnuts, coarsely chopped

Directions

1. Boil noodles in water (most take 9-11 minutes to cook)
2. Use 1 tbsp of oil to saute onions until clear
3. Add in green peppers, red peppers, and garlic and a little bit of water. Cover with a lid and steam for about 3 minutes.
4. Uncover pepper mixture and add in cooking wine and season to taste (I use Old Bay's, but salt and pepper would work just fine too).
5. Continue to simmer until 'sauce' has reduced and peppers are cooked, but slightly crunchy, about 3-4 minutes.
6. Toss in spinach to pepper mixture over low heat and mix around until spinach has wilted.
7. Once pasta is cooked, drain and place on serving plate.
8. Top pasta with pepper mixture.
9. Drizzle remaining olive oil on top of the dish.
10. Chop walnuts and use as a garnish to finish the dish.

*This makes 2 servings! (So each person gets 3/4c pasta, 1/2 the pepper mixture, 1/4 tbsp olive oil on top, and 1/2 tablespoon walnuts on top)
