  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

    • Shawna – Thanks so much! Yes, maybe try broccoli or tomatoes?

    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.
