    2. Heat the olive oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Add the capsicum, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, 1 tablespoon parsley, basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder to the oil and stir; cook until the herbs are heated and fragrant.

    This recipe is delicious. The only thing I changed was to reserve a cup of the pasta water to moisten the noodles before I mixed in the other ingrediants. I did not use powdered garlic. I crushed 4 fresh garlic cloves instead. Absolutely scrumptious!  -  23 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is great... I made it adding the tomatoes chopped, a small Serrano pepper diced and threw in some Mexican cheese. Wonderful.. Grandkids had it your way and loved it. So easy.. Thanks.  -  16 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't measure all the sauce ingredients exactly so it may be my fault, but I wasn't really fond of this recipe. The pimentos were the primary taste even though I used all the fresh herbs called for they didn't even out the pimento taste. I added zucchini just to up the veggie content, but it added a lot to it.  -  17 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
