Ellie, My DH loved this.. he already adores sundried tomatoes so this looked like a tailor made recipe for him. I did add extra sundried tomatoes to the sauce as well as the ones on the top... DH was very enthusiastic and I could give this to him anytime and get no complaints that he's had enough :)I did make one change since I was in a hurry, I didn't have time to do the peppers in the oven so I put them into a hot frypan and dry fryed them, for the most part the skins stayed on, and the taste was still excellent. When I have more time I will do the oven roasting method. Please see my rating system: a winning 5 stars ! Thanks :)
