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!

I tried this recipe today for supper and we loved it. It's so easy and quick but still tastes great. I followed the recipe exactly and used some shredded marble cheese. The only change I would make next time is to increase the tomato to 2 whole tomatoes and maybe decrease the green pepper to 1/2, but only due to personal preference. This recipe is great if you're in a hurry, the ingredients are things I normally have on hand in the kitchen, and the taste is wonderful. I served it with garlic, parmesan bread; and it was just enough for two good portions. Thanks Anu for this recipe. It will be a regular at our home.

my roommate and i loved this. i used penne instead of shells, and added a bit of crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little kick. used a few dashes of parmesean cheese on each serving instead of adding cheddar to the mix...it was wonderful!
