      Tried it and thought it was very good as well. Went back for seconds :) Will cook this for a dinner party next week. I agree that it could use some more cheese. The cheese sauce is very thick and difficult to spread over the pasta. I'd probably double the amount of it and add more milk to make it thinner. I used chilli peppers, as the recipe didn't specify, which was very tasty but probably less authentic and not for the faint of heart. I also used way more than 4 tbsp of oil on the roast vegetables :)

      Made for Christmas dinner and it was pretty good. Would make again, but it is not my 100% favoriate. Did take a lot of work, but it was worth it. Needs more cheese.
