Made up this recipe a few days ago in order to use up our homemade pasta.

Roasted bell pepper, marinated artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, oil-cured olives and feta cheese with some good extra-virgin olive oil gave the pasta tons of deliciousness, really didn't need anything else.

Quick and easy enough, you only need to boil some pasta, then toss these yummy stuff all together, you have a tasty yet nutritious meal on the plate :)
