    This recipe is good, but I was unable to get it nearly as creamy as the picture. I also thought the red pepper flavor was slightly overwhelming. Overall, though, it's a good appetizer recipe.

    Absolutely fantastic! Quick and simple, delicious and healthy! The only changes I made were using garbanzo beans instead of cannelloni, and I added two extra garlic cloves. I'll be definitely making this again, and again, and again...

    This recipe was good, but tasted like it was missing something. I added about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and the flavor really picked up nicely. I have had it with carrots, celery, and saltine crackers and all go well.

    I made this last night and found it to be too runny and quite bland. Maybe after sitting a day that will change?? I think the red peppers need to be patted dry before pureeing. As for flavor, I'm not sure what would spice this up. With the ingredients as listed it sounded so good.

    I love this recipe. It is super easy to make and tastes fantastic. I add a bit more red pepper and basil than it calls for just so it has more of a punch to it. The trick is to make it ahead of time so all the flavors can come together. It is also super easy to make. It would also be a good topping for a healthy pizza.

    Just Wonderful for dieting. Took suggestions and used 1/4 salt, 2 extra cloves garlic. Would definitely use for company with fresh veggies. Just remember to dry the beans after rinsing.

    I followed the recipe and the dip came out really good. I needed something quick for a social I was attending. Very easy and everyone enjoyed it (and even asked for the recipe). The fresh basil really adds to the flavor.

    I've made this recipe twice now and have gotten several compliments each time. This last time I forgot the salt and pepper, but didn't notice the difference. So simple to make and I serve it with pita chips or veggies. Yum!

    Extremely easy to make and it's so tasty! The flavors are so fresh. We served with whole wheat pita chips.

    This is a great healthy snack option. It is better if you add 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar instead of 1. This is a great potluck item served with tostito's lime chips. Also tastes great with baby carrots and celery sticks.

    I made this dip this evening when looking for satisfying lo-cal snacks and had everything in the pantry with the exception of fresh basil. I substituted dried basil leaves, increased the balsamic vinegar to 2 teaspoons and was very liberal with the garlic. I also used a 19 ounce can of cannellini beans because that's what I had on hand. The texture was perfect. Highly recommend.

    Liked the flavor of this a lot and really liked having a flavorful dip that wasn't cream cheese or sour cream based. I will add more beans next time to give it more body/thickness. I added lemon juice at the end, which brightened up the flavor some.

    Tasted great. Making it again.

    This is totally delicious, and so simple! I may add some extra beans next time to thicken it up a little more. it was a big hit.

    I added 1/2 cup of cottage cheese to give it some protein and make it a complete snack with some pita bread and veggies for dipping.

    Lived it just as written. EZ to double for a crowd. Good chilled too

    This was very good, but needed a few changes. After making it exactly to the recipe, I added more garlic and pepper, plus some smoked paprika. Next time I'll add lemon juice to brighten the flavor as suggested by another reviewer.

    Easy, light, and excellent. I drain beans and red peppers for a while in a colander, and have no need to pat them dry. I also add 4/5 cloves of roasted garlic, and a tablespoon of ground chili peppers to add more flavor and a bit of a punch. It comes out nice and creamy, great texture and great taste... and it's good for you.
