This was excellent! The only thing I did different was to sauté the bell pepper, green and red onion until the onions started to take on that transparent look. I then set them aside and did not add them in until the last two minutes of step 7. Used olive oil to sauté. Everyone really enjoyed this and I can’t wait to make it again!!!
Super easy yet super tasty. I took Charlotte comment on adding green pepper at the end - love those sweet and crisp of green pepper. Since I did not have any Rotini, I served mine with hot French Bread, just like a soup. Hearty and filling meal in less than 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Yep. This what I grew up on. Looks good. I usually got it with macoroni, rather than rotini.
