    this tasted ok, but really needed more seasoning. After a few minutes, when we went back for seconds, the sauce was clumpy and goopy. Not sure if I will make this again.

    I made this without the onion, but I will try it next time with the onion. The green peppers were nice and tender. This had the perfect amount of flavor without being too much. My six year old ate everything on his plate and he usually does not like green peppers. It smelled really good cooking and I was not disappointed with the final result. This one is a keeper!
