      We made this last night and followed the recipe, not really impressed. It was rather bland and I like a bit of zip in my food. Will not bother making it again

      Delicious and such an easy dinner too! The only changes I made was using dry basil instead of fresh and using whole wheat fettuccine. Thanks for sharing!

      Simple and good. I used green, red, and yellow bell peppers since I had them on hand. Thanks for sharing, Charlotte. Made for ZWT9.
