Pepperoni Pizza Pasta

Last night I watched Casablanca for the first time. A friend watched his dvd at the same time, so that was cool. I could ask questions. This pasta would be a good movie date meal.

Pepperoni Pizza Pasta
6 oz. uncooked bow tie pasta
1 1/2 tsp. dried basil
1 large onion, chopped
4 oz. sliced pepperoni
1-1/2 c. each julienned green and red peppers

1 tsp. pizza seasoning
