I thought this was excellent! I cut the recipe in half, with no problems, and substituted extra roasted red peppers as I'm not fond of peas in pasta. I altered the technique slightly, tossing the cooked pasta in the pan with the sauce then putting the whole lot into a serving bowl. I also tore up a few basil leaves and added them in at the end, only because I had some on hand; they were a nice addition but not necessary. This cooked up very fast and had a pleasant taste that I quite enjoyed. I'll be trying this one again!
