Tre Colori Pasta

It has been a while. I'm sorry for neglecting you little blog. I swore I wouldn't.
I need the cactus of the blog world. One that seems to actually prosper from ill treatment.
There was a flu, a trip inter-state, and the beginning of a new course..
Lot's of soups, eating out.. and more recently, sandwiches to go.

[My new little college's cafe is vegetarian/vegan!
So far I've only sampled the vegan banana bread.]

When I was inter-state, visiting my brother, he took us to the local Italian supermarket (huge).
I bought this charming pasta, with not much of an idea, what I would actually use it for.
I may need to have my brother send up some packets for me- as it was so delicious, this is bound to go quick!

Again I'm in dire need of a big food shop, but rather lacking in the funds, so every meal is a take on bubble & squeak right now.
Thus was born, tre colori pasta- three coloured pasta.

1/4 onion, chopped finely
1/4 red capsicum, cut into thin strips
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp chilli paste
1/2 zucchini, cut into ribbons

1.Put your pasta water on to boil, and cook pasta as per directions. Heat olive oil in fry pan, and add onions and capsicum. Saute until soft.
2.Add the garlic and chilli paste, and stir well.
3.When you can smell the garlic, add the zucchini. Cook until tender.
4.Drain pasta, turn out 'sauce' mixture into empty pasta pot. Add drained pasta, and a lug of good olive oil. Stir over heat for a couple of minutes.
5.Serve with salt and pepper.
