What a *SUPER* base recipe - 4.5 or better. Whatever you do, do **NOT** skip - or skimp on - the Parm ... I believe we had roughly twice as much as the original recipe suggests ... it truly moves this dish into the big leagues.
While nice on its own, I tweaked this a good deal to cater to our tastes the second time around: upped garlic to 1 T powdered + 2.5 T minced, doubled the amounts of sautéed onion & Bell pepper, added ~ 1 C super thin celery slices, 3T ground dry Ancho pepper, 1/2 C finely chopped Pompano peppers, increased oyster sauce to 3T while dramatically increasing the basil & oregano to 2 T and 1T respectively. Used large can of cherry tomatoes rather than a smaller one of diced. Added no salt or pepper - smooth rich heat from the mild chili peppers and plenty of sodium in the oyster sauce. All in all, I think this is one of the best dishes I've ever had ... very grateful to the originator for posting it!!
