Cook pasta as per the directions, drain it, and keep aside.

While the pasta is cooking, roast your red bell peppers at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, turning it every 5 minutes with a pair of tongs. Once charred and softened, let cool, remove skin, seed, and cut into thin slices.

In a large bowl, add the cooked pasta, cucumbers, roasted red pepper, sundried tomatoes, apricots and dates. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, smoked paprika and salt. Pour over the pasta mixture. Mix well.

Mix in the fresh herbs, sprinkle with pinenuts and serve at room temperature, chilled or even warmed up. Enjoy!
