      The shells themselves were very tasty, but I didn't much care for the sauce. It might be just a personal thing, but I felt it needed something to 'round' it out. Next time, I think I'll add maybe a 1/4 cup of cream and a half teaspoon of tomato paste to it.

      We realy enjoyed the whole dish, and found the sauce tasty too! I had to use smaller shells as the 4 supermarkets here didnt have realy big shells. The one thing that I would comment on was the prep time, 10 minutes? it took me that long to chop the onion and eggplant, more to roast the capsicums, and more to fill the shells, mince the basil, grate the cheese,............. But it was a nice dish, and if I ever find big shells I would probably make it again.
