    Excellent base recipe. I added beans and mushrooms to make it more interesting. Very nice!!  -  24 Aug 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I made it with 3 green peppers, 3 cloves of garlic, and 3 chicken sausages. I used one onion and 500g of linquine and it was perfect!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Great and easy lunch idea! So simple to throw together! I added a variety of coloured peppers and fresh mushrooms. I couldn't belive that a few ingrediants would turn out so tasty. It doesn't make a lot and I probally wouldn't serve to guests but I WILL be making this one again! I MIGHT add a dash of crushed chilli for some heat but is good as is. Thanks Jackie!  -  21 Jul 2008
