I didn't use the red peppers this time, but I did add sliced mushrooms and some fresh spinach.

    This was great even without the cheese; I substituted Ezekial 4:9 penne for the orzo and also used olive oil spray. We loved it. - 4/11/08

    I absolutely love this recipe... and I know I'm not a great chef or anything, but I didn't realize the veggies would come out so tasty by oven roasting them. They were fabulous. All the adults who tried it agreed, although I still couldn't get my kids to eat these veggies. - 4/19/09
