1 red pepper/capsicum, diced
1 spanish/red onion, diced
400g (14 oz) canned diced or crushed tomatoes
salami, sliced (I also cut the slices into quarters to make small, bite-sized pieces)
500g (1lb) small pasta (eg elbows, macaroni, spirals)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
Parmesan cheese to serve
1. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, until soft.
2. Add tinned tomatoes, salami and capsicum. Bring to the boil and simmer for approximately 30 minutes, until capsicum/pepper is soft. Season to taste - I just added a bit of pepper. I thought the salami provided enough saltiness.
3. Cook pasta as per packet instructions.
4. Mix together the cooked pasta and the sauce, and serve into bowls. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Funnily enough, my husband said "we haven't had this in a while" when he pulled it out of the microwave when he got home. I said "That's because I've never cooked it before". Turns out, from the look of it, he thought it was my Creamy Tomato Pasta. I must admit, they are very similar!
