Food Friday: Ditilini, hot and sweet peppers, and red sauce

We had some ditilini pasta in a jar in the pantry.  We also had some Hot and Sweet Cherry Peppers one shelf below the pasta.  As I was trying to use up the food in the pantry and in the refrigerator, I decided that ditilini pasta and Trader Joe's Hot and Sweet Peppers were a match made in heaven.  For me, at least.

2 cups dry ditilini pasta (small round tubes)
4 hot and sweet peppers, finely chopped
2 cups prepared red pasta sauce

Cook the ditilini to your preferred done-ness in heavily salted boiling water. (You really do want a lot of salt in pasta cooking water. It makes a HUGE difference in taste.  Try it next time!) When done, drain, then put back in the same pot and immediately add the chopped peppers and red sauce.  Stir well and serve.

You can top it with lots of things.  I put grated Parmesan cheese on one and kale chips on mine.  It was pretty good.  Dear One went back for seconds and was very happy to eat the remaining bits the following day!

Ditilini Bowls.  There is Parmesan on the right.  Kale chips were eventually added to the left bowl.
