I thought it was nice and very quick to make. I would say it needs something to make it a bit more interesting like roasting the vegetables and adding chili flakes. This would make a great side as a pasta salad by using fusilli instead of linguine - it's lovely and fresh would be good at BBQ's

After reading the comments below, I decided to modify the recipe slightly as I thought a Mexican pasta dish would have super potential! I roasted the tomatoes and red onions and mixed the roasted veg in with the pasta and other ingredients with a blob of enchilada sauce. It was lush and so filling! Really liked the avocado on the top also.

That's a great idea I hadn't thought of that! Will try that next time

It's like deconstructed guacamole on pasta. Easy I guess, but not great.

Not bad at all for a quick and easy midweek meal - I did add some pancetta, which was delicious.Would make again but would probably use less onion next time.

A bit uneventful as it is but a useful standby. I added bacon a second time which greatly lifted bit but obviously no longer vegan

Somewhere a coalition of angry Italian and Mexican people has formed and they're coming after the creators of this recipe. Avoid.
