    I really enjoyed this pasta dish and my husband said it was awesome. Based on outher reviews that it lacked flavor, I added roasted red peppers and sun dried tomatoes. I also used vegetable rotini because that's what I had on hand. In case my guests wanted more cheese, I put some grated romano cheese on the table (which some guests used). What's great about the dish is the unique combination of flavors without the usual feeling of heaviness you find with other pasta dishes.  -  20 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This turned out great, bold and delicious. I followed the general suggestions regarding not enough sauce. I used more like 30 kalamatas, most of an older bell pepper, two jalapenos and seeds (although they were apparently mild as the dish had no heat), and approx. a cup of red wine. I used approx a cup of feta and cheddar, and per a previous suggestion, I tossed the feta with the pasta and sauce. I also tossed in artichoke hearts.  -  10 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
