This turned out well, but as other reviewers have stated, it does make a lot. I used mini pepperoni, grape tomatoes, and subbed mozzarella for the Parmesan cheese.
Made it as written, except that I used heart shaped pasta for Valentine's Day. We enjoyed this - but it does make a lot. Would be great for a pot luck get together. I took a bowl to my friend to...
I would use less carrots--they were over-powering. Otherwise, this was good and well-received.
I didn't use the olives (personal preference I suppose). But this was great!
