    We made this last night and followed the recipe, not really impressed. It was rather bland and I like a bit of zip in my food. Will not bother making it again

    Delicious and such an easy dinner too! The only changes I made was using dry basil instead of fresh and using whole wheat fettuccine. Thanks for sharing!

    Simple and good. I used green, red, and yellow bell peppers since I had them on hand. Thanks for sharing, Charlotte. Made for ZWT9.

    This is delicious. I used yellow and green bell pepper and canned mushrooms for convenience. I also used 1% milk and a little butter instead of the whipping cream since that was what I had on hand. We loved it!! I will definitely make this again.
