This is a very good main dish that doesnt include meat, but a whole lot of flavor. I found that baking it at a higher temp, 375, and for a little longer, 20 minutes total, you can really get a more heartier taste.Overall, two thumbs up! Thanks!-04 Jan 2007
I thought the flavor was great a bit too much red pepper next time I will add Zuchini and yellow squash in place of some of the red pepper.-09 Feb 2006
If you love veggie's (esp. roasted), this is divine! Beautiful, tasty, healthy. I made enough to last for two more lunches, and I'm so glad. Of course I modified according to what I had on hand. Subbed crimini for portabella (divine!) Omited tomato Omited tapenade. Added a little sea salt and black pepper. Used bow tie pasta.-18 Feb 2010
