I can't rate this exactly according to the recipe because I used pasta noodles instead of baked potatoes, BUT the mixture of vegetables, sauce (I used Reduced Fat Alfredo Baked Potatoes Primavera and loved it), basil and red pepper was so tasty. I'll try it again with the potatoes, but it was so delicious with pasta and homemade alfredo sauce!
