Mediterranean Tri Pepper Pasta Recipe

This post about Mediterranean Tri Pepper Pasta Recipe is brought to you thru my relationship with Dreamfields Pasta. All opinions are 100% my own.

Did you know October was National Pasta Month? Considering  that our family has pasta at least once a week, it was a natural for me to celebrate. Pasta is so simple to make and pair with a sauce and veggies. We actually have “gravy” wars between my husband, my son and I, as to who can make the best sauce!

While our family loves the traditional pasta sauce, this mom sometimes needs a no cook recipe that she can throw together with simple pantry items. So when Dreamfields called and asked if I’d like to participate in their #HealthyPastaMonth promotion with a quick and easy recipe, I jumped at the chance. This Mediterranean Tri-Pepper Pasta Recipe fits that criteria, plus it tastes great hot or cold. We used Dreamfields Penne Rigate but any type of pasta shape will be just as tasty. We also roasted our own yellow pepper for this recipe but if you can find jarred red and yellow roasted peppers, this makes the recipe that much easier.

My grandmother and mother used to roast peppers right on top of their gas stoves. You can roast the peppers in the oven if you are doing a bunch but for this recipe, we just needed to roast one yellow pepper and this is quick and easy. Simply place your washed and dried sweet pepper over the gas flame. When a side gets a nice charring on it, simply rotate the pepper until it is completely charred on all sides.

Simply place the charred pepper in a paper bag and allow the pepper to steam. I waited about 15-2o minutes.

When the pepper is cool enough to touch, simply peel off the charred skin and you have a freshly roasted pepper.

Meanwhile, boil your Dreamfields pasta per the package directions. Then start adding the yummy Mediterranean flavors of feta, olive oil and basil.
