      3/4   lb           Rigatoni
    2       tb           Olive oil
                         Freshly ground black pepper
      1/2   c            Black olives, pitted
                         - roughly chopped
                         -----SWEET PEPPER SAUCE-----
    2       lg           Red peppers
    4                    Garlic cloves -- peeled
                         Freshly ground black pepper
   Cook the rigatoni in a large saucepan until al dente.
   Drain immediately and return the rigatoni to the
   still-warm pan with the olive oil; season the pasta to
   taste with salt and black pepper.
   While the pasta is cooking, make the Sweet Pepper
   Serve the pasta on warmed plates, pour the sauce on
   top and sprinkle with the chopped olives.
   SWEET PEPPER SAUCE:  Put the peppers into a saucepan
   with enough water to almost cover.  Bring to a boil,
   then simmer until tender.  Remove the peppers from the
   water, reserve the water and discard the stems and
   seeds. Chop and place in a blender or food processor.
   Add the garlic to the peppers, together with 1 1/4
   cups of the cooking water, and blend to a puree.
   Transfer to a clean saucepan.  Season with salt and
   pepper and reheat gently.
