This was somewhat bland (I didn't use the red pepper because I have 2 small kids) and watery. I used baby spinach and reconstituted dried mushrooms (it was a desperate night) but I think it was the canned tomatoes that made it "blah" (I used plain caned tomatoes with about 1 tsp dried italian seasoning). Marinara might have been better. I'm sure meat would've helped as well. So feel free to add more seasoning! I even used full-fat ricotta and added pecorino romano cheese on top, but all that made it "good" was my 5-year-old daughter's idea to add pesto. Then it was good.
