MY REVIEW

Made it without the green pepper only because I didnt have any. My husband and I loved it! Can't wait to make it again with green pepper.

This has become a favorite at our house. You can add all the peppers you want without adding to the fat content and we love the peppers. I often use multicolored peppers and servre if over rice.

Try this over rice or a pasta. Sugar really isn't always necessary
