This was easy and delicious. I added a bit of store-bought marinara sauce to thicken at the end. The flavors were wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
This is really, really good. I love how the flavors blend together. Plus, it is so simple! Don't forget to start your water to boiling as soon as you start cooking. I forgot, and my sauce cooked a little longer than it should have. But it still turned out great! It's a very forgiving recipe. I subbed cayenne and chili powders for the red pepper flakes, because I realized as I was cooking that I was out. Next time, I will use a green pepper in place of the red, so I can have more color. This is a great recipe; I'm so glad I tried it! ETA 7/8/06: Still loving it! The first few times I made this, DH complained that the sauce didn't stick to the spaghetti. I found that I was not simmering the sauce long enough. Teach me to try and speed up dinner! Great recipe, and so pretty. The picture does not do it justice, but I hope you enjoy anyway!
All in all, this is a very tasty (and healthy) meal. I did add a bit of fresh basil from my garden to the mix. The only comment I would make is to julienne the peppers into 2 inch "matchsticks" to make it easier to eat. Thank you Brenda M. for sharing the recipe.
