      Fresh, light, and delicious. I did not use any peppers (didn't have any on hand) and I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, adding some Italian seasoning. I also added some sun-dried tomatoes and topped this with fresh basil and parsley at the end. DH asked me if there was meat in this, because with the smoked gouda it does taste almost like there's bacon in it. Thank you!

      Loved it! The smoked gouda made all the difference. I tweaked this a bit; I used a whole wheat, high-fiber fusilli, and a reduced-fat smoked gouda. And I threw in two links of low-fat jalapeno chicken sausage, thinly sliced, and two small zucchini, just to add more bulk/fiber without adding much fat or many calories. Very flavorful, and a wonderful dish on a chilly night. Thanks for posting!

      This was a good way to use some smoked gouda that I needed to use up.It made it pretty unique as far as pasta dishes go. I loved all the veggies. I did add some browned ground pork and beef to satisfy my husband. I think I would have loved it with a can of tomato sauce and a little tomato paste added.
