This is very tasty. Ok I did add ground beef but the flavouring was great alone masha Allah. I used a unrefined extra virgin olive oil and red peppers. I followed the rest. I would make this again and would like to try it vegetarian with some grated cheese.
HOOOOLY GUACAMOLEEEEE! This is so good! Perfect over some spaghetti noodles for a great easy (and light) weeknight supper!!! I used Hunt's canned petite diced maters! Thanks for posting! This is a definite keeper! :D Made for PRMR Tag February 2010!
LOVE IT. What a wonderful dinner I am eating as I type! I put some mushrooms in the sauce, but otherwise made it exactly as written. For the sweet pepper, I used roasted red pepper. I just love a thick, red sauce and that's exactly what this is! I am enjoying it atop some cheese tortellini for a fabulous vegetarian meal. YUMMO. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe, Kat!
