"This was a good recipe. I read the reviews and ended up using marinara sauce to add extra flavor. It turned out very delicious and easy!"

"This was ok, but I didn't feel there was enough flavor. Will add a few more spices if I make again"

"Not bad, but nothing too special. It begs to be customized for personal taste, so I'll probably make it again with some changes. The corn starch really thickened the sauce, so I may cut back a bit on that and add some mushrooms and oregano or Italian seasoning."

"Made this with onion powder instead of onions. I only had two bell peppers but it would have been better with three. I used a large dice instead of strips. I used one can of chipotle diced tomatoes and one regular. This was good and easy to make."
