Mafia Style Veggie Pasta

Well its funny to call it mafia style veggie pasta but I have perfect nice explanation for that, this recipe is inspired from a Sicilian recipe for somewhere on net (Sicily being famous as mafia-country), I designed this dish to be hot and spicy in honor of the great mafia. I promise its a "taste bud kicker".
This recipe is all about chili, I've used green chillies, capsicum, chili sauce and red chili flakes. Have also given it a slight dash of fresh ground black pepper, fresh chopped ginger & garlic, these ingredients give nice aroma and appetizing taste to this dish but remember its all about the chilies. Cheers.

Ingredients :
2 cups cooked pasta of your choice.
1 medium sized Capsicum, I used green capsicum, chopped into chunks
1 medium sized Onion, chopped into chunks
1 medium-large sized Tomato, you guessed it right chopped into chunks
2 green chillies chopped
2 pods of garlic thinly sliced
1/2 inch ginger thinly sliced
2 tbs chili sauce
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp red chili flakes/ 1/4th tsp red chili powder
salt to taste
2 tbs olive oil

Method :
Heat olive oil in heavy bottom pan, add ginger, chillies and garlic. Saute for 30 seconds and add in onions. Saute for a minute and add in capsicum, after a minute add in chilli sauce, ground black pepper, salt and chilli flakes. Saute for 30 more seconds and add in tomatoes. Saute till tomatoes are cooked.
Now toss in cooked pasta and garnish it with dried parsley leaves and/or any herbs preferred.

Tips :
Toss in any kind of chili eg. capers or jalapeno or different coloured capsicum like red or yellow.
