    I thought the recipe was very simple. the sauce, I would not make in a blender. I did this time, but I had to add more milk to get it to go. I would use a processor next time. I also added more garlic, since I like it, but in the end, I thought it was too much. Maybe that was because I added to everything else in the blender whole. But anyway, I didn't have a whole jar of peppers, I used half and then cut up a container of grape tomatoes and added them! I thought it was good otherwise :)

    I liked this better cold as a salad. I used a food processor rather than a blender. I also used sun dried tomatoes instead of the peppers.. it has a mild flavor so someone who likes rich flavors may not care for this. the sundried tomatoes where the perfect match because of this... this will be a regular in my menu planning..
