Prepare using any shape of bite-size whole wheat or whole grain pasta, such as fusilli, shells or penne.
Different brands of whole wheat pasta absorb water differently. If, after adding broccoli and peppers, all the water has been absorbed, add 1/2 cup additional water. If the pasta mixture is still very watery after adding the tomatoes, increase the heat to medium-high and cook until most of the water has been absorbed.
Substitute a yellow bell pepper for the orange pepper.
