In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter with 2 tablespoons oil. Add onion; saute for 5 minutes. Stir in green pepper and garlic; saute for an additional 3 minutes.

Tips: This was a tasty meatless dinner that was easy to put together. Instead of chopping all the vegetables ahead of time, this recipe should give you enough time to chop the next item to add while the vegetable before it is sauteing. It is best to use pasta like bowtie, rotini or penne instead of long noodles like spaghetti or linguine. I also shared this recipe at 11th Heaven's Homemaker Mondays & Breastfeeding Moms Unite's Vegetarian Foodie Friday.
