I have always loved the combination of peppers, onions, and mushrooms.  Probably from days of way too many cheesesteaks and a waistline to match.  So when thinking about a pasta dish last week, that combination came to mind.  I wanted to bump it up a bit so I added diced tomatoes and cream cheese to create a simple creamy tomato sauce to pull everything together.  If you prefer a tomato-less sauce you could leave out the diced tomatoes and use a bit of the pasta cooking liquid to thin out the sauce.  Just make sure to season everything well.
