      Peeling the peppers is a LOT of work, but this recipe is DELICIOUS!!!!!! Thanks for posting it. We made it exactly as specified.

      This was absolutely delish! I served this with breaded pork chops and peas. What a tasty side dish! The two things I did different were to use roasted red peppers and leave out capers, since I didn't have any. Thank you for a great side dish! :)

      The only change I made was in omitting the capers, which I didn't have. While this was an extremely healthy recipe (no oil!), it was a bit too sour for my liking. Somehow the peppers seemed to have absorbed all the sourness, while the pasta was more sweet. But I do like the concept of boiling peppers, and I'll probably use that technique often now! Thanks basia!
