"Excellent recipe! My husband & I add a whole sweet red pepper (instead of a half) and pine nuts to this recipe. We keep a jar of chopped jalapeno peppers "on hand" and use 2 heaping TB in this recipe."

"Made this for dinner tonight (for a picky eater for a hubby) and it was pretty tasty but a tad too spicy. I would cut back a bit on the jalapeno and add a little olive oil when tossing it all together. Next time we thought it would be good too with chicken pieces in there. Will make it again."

"My husband and I love this dish! It is so tasty. We add scallops, shrimp or salmon pieces. A lot of ingredients but definitely well worth it."
