Louisiana style Penne Rigate pasta and vegetables in a white wine tomato sauce. Makes a great dinner by itself or share it as a side-dish.

 ½ cup Penne Rigate pasta
 1 tbsp oil
 6 slices red onion
 3 strips green pepper
 3 strips red pepper
 6 pieces snow peas
 1 mushroom, sliced
 ¼ cup white wine
  tsp garlic powder
 1 pinch white pepper
 ¼ cup diced tomatoes
 2 tbsp cocktail sauce
 1 green onion, chopped
 grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions. While the pasta water is heating up, heat a sauce pan to medium. Once hot add the oil. When the oil is hot add the red onions and saute until translucent about 2 minutes. Add the green and red peppers, snow peas, and the mushrooms. Saute for another 2 minutes.


Add the wine and reduce by half--should only take about 5 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, cocktail sauce, white pepper, and garlic and simmer till bubbling. Toss with the pasta and serve with the green onion and shredded Parmesan on top.
