Mixed Bell Pepper Pasta

Mixed Bell Pepper Pasta, this is an easy pasta recipe using penne pasta and three colors of bell peppers. My son is a great fan of this pasta. Whenever I make this for my kids, I will add less pepper powder and more tomato ketchup. Otherwise, we like it little spicy, so I will add more pepper powder and chili sauce. This recipe will be so colorful and tasty. In this recipe, I have used only bell pepper, you can also add vegetables of your choice.
