This was really disappointing. It was missing any real flavor, even though I added some marinated artichoke hearts to the mix, some garlic and a fair amount of basil. I also had to another pepper to hold the filling, even though I followed the amounts in the recipe.We ended up salting this at the table and adding some balsamic vinegar to bring some flavor to the dish. Even though this recipe could probably be tweaked, we won't be making this again.
