This recipe was delicious! I was surprised at how good it was with such a healthy recipe. I'm a vegetarian but my husband is not and he still loved it even with no meat added. But a warning to those with small households: this makes a LOT of veggies. I started chopping and tossing in a casserole dish not paying attention to how many veggies there really were until I filled the dish before cutting 2/3 of them and had to switch to an even bigger one. It was so good that I was happy to have leftovers but I felt like the recipe could be halved for a family of 2-4 (depending on portion size) if you don't want leftovers.
Good Idea!!! We had a lot of vegetable on whole grain pasta.
I din't have peppers at home, but the recipe was perfect indeed!
Everybody like it.
For the italian spieces I used: tyme, pepper flakes, chili and garlic flakes!
