I can't eat normal red sauce again. I love this dish. I fed it to my team mates before a big relay race. It was a huge hit! Toooooooo good.
This was so good! It made a nice change, like you said! Next time I think I'll do what VoijaRisa suggested, and add some eggplant, and maybe some roasted capsicum, just to give it a little more flavour.
While quite good, this recipe seemed to be lacking a little something. It wasn't quite as robust as I was hoping for from all the things in it. I had even added mushrooms. I think perhaps some artichoke or eggplant may help depending on taste. Overall, a nice solid recipe. Very simple to make (although somewhat time consuming), but I did like that it didn't take many dishes (I did most of it in a wok). It ended up being slightly better reheated after the noodles (fettuchini in my case) had soaked up some of the sauce. I think this might also be better with penne or other tubular pasta which would hold the sauce better than fettuchini or spaghetti.
