“Wow! This was so very good! I couldn’t believe it when I tasted it. And, my three boys devoured it (even the pickiest one!) I love this recipe and will be making it over and over. The only thing I changed was to roast my own peppers instead of the jarred kind. Great recipe!!” – Amy

This looks amazing! What a great dish for Meatless Mondays! I’m going to have to try this soon. Do you think half & half can be substituted for the heavy cream?

Boy, did I mess up this recipe. I used thin spaghetti, turned in to a mess. Next time will try regular spaghetti noodles. Thanks

I am putting the ingredients together for my 12 year old son. He’s working on his cooking badge and he and a buddy have to make dinner tonight. This is what my son said he wanted to make with added chicken. Excited to find out how it turns out.

    I hope he loves it!! Good luck on the cooking badge, that’s a fun one!

Changed a couple things, instead of red peppers I added a can of spicy red pepper tomatoes and cut the water to 2 cups. I used linguine, perfect. Thanks for sharing.

wondering if I should put the lid on so all the pasta cooks i am in the process of making it i am using fusilli pasta made with brown rice and quinoa and a little sprinkle of red lentil sedanini (very small penne) pasta.

This was sooo good!

    So excited to hear that you loved this pasta! Thanks for stopping by, Samantha! 🙂

I come from Tuscany and I’ve never heard of this recipe. Which are the ingredients that make it “Tuscan” anyway? I don’t see any of them.
Moreover, you don’t cook one pot pasta, NEVER!

My husband loves this and so do I! So easy to make. We’ve had it numerous times and it’s always good. We prefer cream over Half & half, but both are good. Don’t skimp on the parmesan!

    NEVER skimp on parmesan! Right? 😉 So glad that you and your husband frequent this dish! Thanks for sharing, Dianne!
