    30 minutes

    I love the colours in this dish, the bright red of the capsicum and green of the sugar snap peas. It tastes great too.

    Good recipe!! Little spicy (which i think is from the garlic and pepper) but the tastes meld well together. I didn't bother to check the fat or sodium intake on this but it tatses really healthy considering most pasta recipes call for a butter or cream ingrediant. Left out the water chesnuts and used frozen pea pods...will make again! Goes well with garlic bread.  -  18 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
