      I really enjoyed this recipe. I upped the proportions of the ingredients to accomodate a 500 gram bag of pasta. I also used fresh oregano and fresh basil, tossed that right into the stir-fry. The scent was heavenly! I didn't use any cheese, I wanted to savor the vegetables' flavor. Thanks a bunch Anu, this is going to become a regular addition to our family meals.

      I made this for me and my partner tonight and it was quite nice! I did half green pepper and half red because I was low on green and had just gotten a new red one. Like another reviewer, I used parmesan instead of cheddar (with a few sprinkles of mozzarella) and a few hits of crushed red pepper flakes, which did add a nice kick, though I might tone it down with the red flakes next time. It was a little spicy for my taste, but my boyfriend likes spice more than me! This was definitely pretty good, fast, and relatively healthy (depending on how much oil and cheese you wind up using)!

      Thank you for a wonderful recipe! As a personal preference, I used 1/2 green bell pepper, diced, and added some minced garlic with the onion. I also used a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese as opposed to the cheddar. It was quick and easy to put together, and so healthy!
