  1. Do you have some good suggestions to substitute for bell peppers? They just don’t sit well with me, love the taste but they don’t love me!
    I have to say that I have not had a bad recipe yet. You guys are awesome and I am so glad I stumbled on to this website.
    Thanks

  2. This is one of those dishes that just looks healthy when you’re cooking it. It tasted fantastic and I added a little chilli as well.

  3. I really loved this! Next time I will add the onion and like the comment above some mushrooms.

    Thank you for the recipe!

  4. This is a great recipe, thank you for all of the wonderful recipes on your site. I would recommend for those who like a little heat to add just a half teaspoon of crushed red pepper. delicious!
