Even though it's an update, it's still very "rich"! It filled the bill for comfort food and would easily feed eight people with some vegetable sides. I was concerned that the whole red bell pepper with the pimentos (I used Piquillo) would be a bit much but it was not. I do think however that the next time I make this one I will substitute some mushrooms for all or part of the red bell pepper. Had also forgotten how good Ritz crackers are!! Just note that a sleeve of crackers no longer weighs 4 oz. it is now just a tad over 3 oz.
I do not see how this dish is meant to feed eight people.
