    Altered ingredient amounts. Very tasty! I found that a whole pcak of Linguine was too much for the sauce/vegetables. I recommend only cooking half the apcket or else doubling the rest. I used half and it came out very nice.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Love this recipe - although a whole packet of pasta is too much, and it is a little dry (a little more oil sorted this out). But so tasty and perfect for the vegetarian in my house.  -  05 Aug 2010


    Something else. made a few modifications and it was excellent: No butter, only olive oil, for sauteeing. One red pepper, one green pepper, three diced fresh tomatoes, ten oil cured black olives (when we couldn't find any anchovies), and three heaping spoons of diced fresh garlic. Also a teaspoon and a half of salt Strongly considered adding some chillies... Instead of linguine, we used penne and it turned out delicious warm and at room temperature.  -  21 Jul 2008
