Spaghetti cravings

The last time I had my share of pasta- well I cannot remember, oops- how could I betray my pasta? Put on your gear, turn on your favorite music- lets make some pasta! 
1/2 package whole wheat spaghetti, cooked per instructions
For the brown butter sauce 
3/4 stick unsalted butter
Any kind of dried herbs you might like
For the veggies
1 red and green pepper, julienne
1/2 onion, slice thinly
For the sauce
Melt butter in a pan on medium heat. Bring butter to a boil and it should take about 5-7 minutes after that. You can read more about it here but mine did not have cream in it.
For the veggies
I used the same pan that I used to make the brown butter sauce, I just threw in the onions with some salt, let it caramelize (did not add an extra sugar) and then added the peppers, cooked them for about 3-4 minutes. Transferred the veggies to a sheet pan and broiled it until the veggies charred a little.
Assembling the pasta
Add about 2-3 tbsp of the brown butter sauce. Mix in the charred veggies- season it per your taste. Add the pasta, mix well- if it seems a bit dry you can add some of the pasta cooking liquid.
Voila, a tasty yet simple dish (Voila, un plat delicieux et simple)!
