Pasta in tomato sauce

Express cooking idea # 2 :Pasta in tomato sauce

Bring a large pot of water to boil and throw in the pasta ( I used macroni) and cook al dente (about 8 minutes). In a pan, sauté a tbsp of finely chopped garlic and chopped onions till soft. Add a handful of chopped bell peppers and fry a minute. Add a can of tomato puree and cook for 4 minutes. Throw in some dry herbs like oregano, basil or whatever you like, salt, pepper and stir through. Now add the pasta and mix well. If you find it too dry, add some liquid from the cooked pasta and stir. Take of the flame and cover for a minute. Serve.
