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.

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.
