Capsicum and Sun dried tomato Spaghetti

Capsicum and Sun dried tomato Spaghetti.
Spaghetto in Italian means thin string. Spaghetti is the plural form of spaghetto. Spaghetti is a cylindrical pasta prepared with all purpose flour. I have prepared a simple, easy and quick spaghetti with bell pepper and sun dried tomatoes.
