"I made this for my knitting group, and everyone loved it!!! I can't believe I was out of red pepper flakes, so I subbed plenty of cracked black pepper, and that worked fine. I served it with crackers, but I think a crust baguette might be better to soak up the olive oil. Definitely a keeper!!!"

"Great recipe! easy to prepare and very pretty in a nice serving bowl. A couple of test tasters thought it might benefit from a splash of apple cider vinegar. I agree that something was missing, but not sure if that was it. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas using soft fresh mozzarella and fresh peppers and herbs from my garden. It is a family favorite."
