Easy Pasta and Pepper Primavera

Always looking for health ways to eat. My husband had a heart attack 2 years ago, so I have to watch how much cholesterol is in everything I make. Came across this recipe in one of my friends cookbook who is a diabetic. The carb. Per serving is 37 g, 272 Cal. The great thing about this recipe is no matter who you are this is a really great way to eat healthy without sacrificing favor.
