¾ cup chopped green bell peppers

¾ cup chopped onion 3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions

•Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a medium baking pan (about 11 x9 inches) Cook pasta according to instructions on package.

•In a medium sauce pan, sauté onions, green bell peppers, garlic, and basil in vegetable oil for 5-6 minutes until onions are clear and golden.

•Combine Three Ships to the Wind wine, roasted red peppers, and crushed tomatoes in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a low simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes, or until it has thickened and reduced by about half.
