Method

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain the water from the pasta and keep it aside. I have used penne pasta, you can choose any pasta of your choice.


Break open the eggs into a bowl. Add black pepper powder, salt to the eggs and beat well.


Heat oil in a pan, add finely chopped ginger, garlic and saute until raw smell vanishes.


Add the onions, salt and saute until they turn golden brown color.


Now add the capsicums/bell peppers and fry for 3 to 4 minutes on medium flame or until the vegetable turns soft.


Add dry red chilli flakes, mixed herbs, salt and mix thoroughly until well combined.


Add the egg mixture to the cooked vegetables and mix well. The eggs will get cooked and will combine well with the vegetables.


Now add the cooked pasta and toss it gently on low flame, until the vegetables and eggs are well mixed with the pasta.


Adjust the amount of salt, black pepper powder, red chilli flakes according to your taste.
Switch off the stove and transfer it to a serving bowl.


Finally sprinkle mixed herbs or oregano, drizzle few drops of olive oil and serve them hot with some sliced tomatoes or plum tomatoes.
