A good solid recipe for a midweek pasta supper. I think it works best as a springboard for additional ideas - as other reviewers have noted above. For me the garlic and chilli were essential. It's good, but don't expect the earth to move!

Fast, easy and tasty. I added some chicken that I'd cooked with a little garlic and some spinach and served over pasta. I would probably add the chili or paprika next time just to spice it up a little.

Quick, easy, tasty - smelled delicious when it was roasting. I only had a bag of mixed peppers but still tastes good. I also roasted a couple of bulbs of garlic and tbps of balsamic vinegar at the end. Best of all - if you use the low cal spray it makes this 0 points on Weightwatchers. Add 60g dried pasta (3pts) and some leftover roast chicken 60g (1pt -skinless) you've got a tasty and filling meal for 4 points.

Great. Needed a little something else though - so added lots of grated parmesan.

Great, easy dish that's so healthy. My 3 year old non-veggie eating daughter loved it. It helps to make sure the peppers are quite chargrilled to enhance sweet flavour.

Lovely, I cooked cubed chicken and mushrooms in the pasata then added blended paper mix. I added vegetable bouillion powder, balsamic vinager 1/4 teasoon sugar to the sauce prio to cooking. Once i had mixed the pasta and sauce I grated fresh parmesan on the top and served with asparagus (to help with our 5 a day) and crusty bread. Yum!!!!!

Easy, chunky sauce. Added chilli and garlic but will miss out the chilli next time as it din't work too well with the sweetness of the pepper.

Delicious, super-healthy and so easy to prepare!

I also added 2 cloves of garlic and served with a handful of fresh basil leaves and thinly sliced spring onion. It is perfect with minced beef. I made double of the amount and froze one half for a lazy-after-work evening!

My fussy husband absolutely loved it!

Superb! I also added the chilli flakes, garlic and finished off with a good season and fresh basil. Much better than the processed stuff.

This sauce is also great over fish and poultry or on a pizza when you're bored with the regular tomato spread.

Top recipe in my book!

A doddle to prepare, this is a delicious, versatile sauce. I sprinkled in some chili flakes for extra bite and a crushed garlic clove.
