Linguini with Aglio, Olio, Peperoncino and Peppers

Linguini with Aglio, Olio and Peperoncino, a classic pasta dish in Italy, loved by all, quick, easy and made with few ingredients, Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino (Garlic, Olive oil and Hot Pepper).   It is hard to believe a plate so simple can be so full of flavor. For a different twist,  I added sweet peppers to the original recipe.  I am calling this recipe, Linguini with Aglio, Olio, Peperoncino and Peppers. Nothing could be better to serve on a quiet Saturday night, open a bottle of red wine and your all set!  Lets cook!!
