Delicious and easy. I added garlic flakes and chilli flakes and then stirred through some cooked mushrooms and smoked bacon and served with pasta. So easy and sooo tasty!!

Lovely and very easy - one I will add to my repertiore.

I added a few cloves of garlic and fresh basil instead of thyme.

I made double the batch of sauce and used one portion with pasta and cheese then used the leftover sauce and added mushrooms which was also lovely and had seconds for lunch at work.

I absolutely love this sauce! I live on my own, so I portion it up and bang it in the freezer - perfect just as a pasta sauce with some grated mozzarella on top. Yum!

Really enjoyed it, very tasty. I did add chilli flakes to it which added a little kick.

Really easy and tasty. A delicious way to eat veg, i blitzed it to a puree so no-one could tell it was veg, went down a treat.

Not bad little sauce. I served it with Chicken Stuffed with Spinach & Feta and each dish lifted the other one. Not bad experiment all in all!

Easy, tasty and low fat! Much better than opening a jar of pasta sauce. I added garlic and chilli to the peppers and onions before roasting them.

Far superior to pasta sauce in jars and only 5 ingredients! Also freezes beautifully.

Really good, easy and healthy recipe. Takes more than 5 mins to prepare though :) Also needs additonal seasoning. I used lots of chilli powder, which worked very well.

Lovely and works with just about any veg. I sometimes add a small aubergine and a couple of cloves of garlic to the roasting tray, half a chilli or so in the blender also works well or a splash of balsamic at the end. So much better than ready made sauce and so quick to prepare.

This was really quick and easy to prepare and tasted sweet and delicious. Used it as a pasta sauce and even my veg-hating children thought it was delicious! Might add some garlic and possibly a little chilli next time too.

I really enjoyed this recipe. We will be having it again that's for sure. I added some garlic and a dash of balsamic vinegar to give it that little more flavour and some chestnut mushrooms. I may try adding some worcester sauce next time. Well worth trying this was delicous. Make sure the peppers are not to small keep them chunky so the brown all over.
