Comments on this Recipe

thi is a good recipe because i was searching up one of these recipe and my teacher thouhgt that the whole class will have a try and cook it and the whole class loved it

This recipe was good but not great. If I were making it again I would add some tabasco and veggies, maybe some arugula or something.

We liked this one. The long twisty noodles are fun and the red sauce is very pleasant- it helps to add a bit of salt and pepper. We also served it with chopped spinach and sauteed tofu (olive oil, dried onion/garlic, oregano and soy sauce).

For me, this recipe is very favorable because it's light, the carrot is a nice twist with the red peppers. you know it can also be eaten without blending the three veggies, I can almost taste the recipe.

It doesn't take long to make it and it's very yummy and filling

Fun Pasta - Boring Sauce. I even tried adding a few additional items to make the sauce more flavorful but I just couldn't get the flavor to pop.

I make this from time to time and enjoy it...it's a nice twist on traditional pasta sauce. I add a bit of crushed red pepper to mine for a little kick and always top it with some fresh basil. Sometimes I add peas, sometimes tofu, sometimes spinach. Tasty!

Love this recipe - I add a little tomato and red pepper soup and use veg broth instead of water for a little extra flavor! And definitely some crushed red pepper flake...mmmm!


I've made this a few times and everyone loved it (veg eaters and meat eaters).
