I love red bell peppers and this was just delicious. I skipped the linguine as DH only likes angel hair thick pasta unless it is ravioli. I topped red bell pepper stuffed ravioli with this amazing sauce and it was perfect. Made for Ramadan tag.

Wonderful recipe with vibrant, fresh flavours! BF never awards 5 stars but this recipe got 5 stars from him! I don't usually like balsamic vinegar but in this recipe it was the perfect amount to blend with the other flavours. It's worth cooking the peppers for the full 30 minutes although I probably added a little extra olive oil to keep it moist! Lovely recipe going into my "tried and loved" folder!

Good stuff! Healthy, easy to make, and great flavor. I may add another garlic clove next time but nothing else was needed. Loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe!
