Pasta is a staple food of Italian cuisine, which served with lots of variations. Typically pasta is made from durum wheat flour or maida, but I prefer semolina based pasta to eat which is healthier than maida based. This pasta dish is really delicious and tasty with roasted bell pepper sauce. For this recipe you have to roast the bell pepper on stovetop, mashed with tomatoes and prepare sauce.
Pasta, especially whole wheat pasta, is known to have several health benefits. Whole wheat contains considerable amount of minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc, potassium and manganese. Minerals are important for the body because they help with the structure of bones, regular heartbeat, and take part in regulating cell growth.
