    Used this as a basic recipe; added minced garlic, paprika, and a Hungarian spice blend I have. Made a bit of a sauce with the pasta water and some beef bullion; otherwise, I think it would be rather bland.

    I made a few changes to this recipe; I left out the red peppers but added fresh garlic and squash. Unfortunately only one of my children liked it and I didn't really care for it either.

    I made a couple of adjustments. We like peppers, so I used 1 green & 1 red pepper. Increased the red onion to 1/4 cup and added 1 clove garlic minced. Saute the peppers, etc. in 2 tbls canola oil & 2 tbls butter. Increased the salt to 1/4 tsp. Served with garlic toast. This was very tasty and will definitely make again.
