    I really love this dish and hope you enjoy it too. The red and yellow sweet peppers, along with the bright green beans, combine for a very pretty presentation. Credit goes to Gene Lee, who first submitted this recipe to Family Circle. I modified it a bit to my tastes.

      Very good and easy dish which my family enjoyed! The changes I made was using 1 whole red bell pepper (instead of two halves), used whole wheat fettuccine and since I didn't have any fresh ginger I sprinkled in some dried ginger. I also added the green onions in with the pasta so they cooked a little bit. Delicious and easy too! Thanks for sharing!

      I used garlic fettuccine which went real nice with this. I would have liked this if the scallions were cooked or sliced thin as a garnish. The one inch was just a bit much. I followed the recipe as called for and it was very easy and quick. I loved the sweet peppers in this. I made this for PAC Thanks!

      This pasta loving family loved this! That we also love sweet peppers, fresh ginger, garlic and shrimp made for a wonderful combination. Didn't have the green beans or peas pods on hand so was extra generous with the peppers. Other than that made as posted. Looking forward to making this with garden fresh vegetables! Yes this one's a keeper and one I will be serving to family and friends. Thank you averybird.
