I thought this tasted okay. It did really feel like it was missing something. This is definitely a recipe that is all about the pasta. I actually ended up boiling the whole box but only used 1/2 of what I cooked, because it would have been way too much pasta. I picked the recipe, because for some reason it looked like a quick week night meal. Honestly, it is somewhat time consuming though. The peppers alone take over 30 minutes. I broiled them on high, on a foil lined sheet in the middle of the oven. They did take the full 15 minutes, another 15 minutes to rest, and even more time to cool. I also had plenty of dishes, with this recipe, a pot for boiling, a sheet pan, tongs, and a large saute pan, on top of cutting boards and knives. Although, the brown paper bag for the peppers was a time saver. I decided to add the optional vegetables and I can't imagine not doing that. I couldn't find frozen cauliflower so I did a Normandy mix I microwaved from frozen state in the microwave, then followed through with the sauté description. When done, I just ended up eating it for lunch. I didn't think it would fill up bigger eaters for dinner. Better than my typical lunch, though, anyway. ty
