Adding pizzazz to platters is a simple process for Suzan Suskie of Whitesboro, New York. "Bow tie pasta and colorful peppers make this dish look as good as it tastes," she relates. "Quick and easy to toss together, it's an impressive addition to the dinner table or any buffet...for as long as it last!"
