1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice into rings.

Cook the pasta:
2 Cook the pasta:

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, 9 to 11 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the capers, chopped garlic, and sliced peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened.

5 Finish the pasta & serve your dish:

To the pan of cooked vegetables and sauce, add the cooked pasta and half the reserved pasta cooking water.
