This was an excellent recipe until we added the cheese. With all the fresh veggies it tasted wonderful as it was cooking. When we added the ricotta it was terrible. We made it again and just served the fresh sauce on pasta, it was great!

After hours of cooking this turned out horrible. There are 4 adults and 2 children at my table and none of them liked it.

This recipie was very good. If you substitute a tsp of crushed, dried red peppers for the fresh red peppers, it gives the sauce a serious kick. This sauce also freezes quite well.
