Excellent dish. I followed some of the suggestions of other reviewers and it made for an outstanding meal. Adding the garlic and crushed red pepper to the onions made for a flavorful sauce. I also added fresh basil in with the pepper mixture whenever I blended the sauce. Heating the half-and-half also made it easier to mix things together. I highly recommend this recipe!

Great recipe. I added some crushed red chili flakes with the onions which gave it a kick. Also sauteed mushrooms and added them to the sauce after it was blended to give the sauce some texture.

This recipe is one of my favorites -- the red pepper flavor of the sauce is fantastic and a great alternative for those tired of standard tomato sauce or looking for something different, but not *too* different. It also tastes rich and satisfying for something that is "light". It's easy and fast too, making it a great week night recipe. It needs one important change, though, to make it excellent: more salt. I think I add about a half teaspoon to the sauce, but tastes vary.
