This is a lovely, colourful dish that I enjoyed making. I steamed fresh green beans for this, used a primavera pasta sauce (would like to try a more assertive sauce next time to liven up flavours - maybe a roasted garlic and onion), and left salt and pepper to be used at the table. I wish I'd had 2 red peppers as that was the taste that highlighted the dish for me. Nice overall, just need to spice it up more next time I make it. Thanks for posting!
