Reviews forPepper Ricotta Primavera
"This recipe looked so beautifully delicious in the magazine, but after reading the current reviews, I knew it needed some helpful improvements. The first thing I did was to include a medium sliced onion. To me, peppers and onions just go together. I kept the hot pepper flakes the same because we like very spicy, but directions could state, "or to taste". Instead of a combined 1/2 teaspoon of dried herbs, I used 1/2 tablespoon of Italian seasonings because that was all I had. I mixed them into the ricotta mixture so they would "bloom". Towards the end of cooking the vegetables, I added 3 cloves of minced garlic. The results were tasty and delicious. The ricotta cream was just the right amount to coat the pasta."
"I saw this recipe in the magazine & knew I had all the ingredients so I gave it a shot. Next time I will search for the recipe online if I find one I like in the magazine. I love spicy dishes but there was way too much crushed red pepper. Once you got past that, I agree with everyone else because it was incredibly bland. I'm going to add jarred alfredo sauce to the leftovers because I hate wasting food and this is borderline inedible on its own."
