I love this recipe and have made it many times. I'm not sure where it came from but it has a heavenly Italian flavour and is very easy to prepare. I have made it for company and have had rave reviews.

I cannot believe that it took me this long to find this recipe! I had lots of red, orange and yellow peppers in the fridge that needed to be used soon and vidalia onions. I grew the large leaf basil this year and added strips to the top before sprinkling the cheese. Not only was it delicious but very beautiful. Thanks for a great recipe. P.S. It's also good cold!

This was very easy I added more garlic. I had a bunch of peppers in my fridge and didn`t know what to do with them, I served it to a bunch of 20 year olds They LOVED it!

Thanks, Chef Judy, for a winner. I followed the recipe exactly except (!) that I added 2 small zucchini that had to be used up. I rarely use tomato sauce but it is perfect in this recipe, glad I didn't sub diced tomatoes. It was enjoyed by all. Had it again today for lunch on bread with chipotle cheddar melted over it. Wow, was THAT good. Janet.
