All the talk of food in the lounge makes me hungry, so here's a recipe I like. I don't quite follow it, since she puts in too much sugar, adds oil to the boiling water for the pasta, and uses some strange archaic measures.
The recipe itself is at http://www.manjulaskitchen.com/2009/08/12/vegetable-pasta/
I assume a bell pepper is a capsicum? If anyone wants the version with metric measures, let me know and I'll put it in the comments.
