      This was lovely. Although the recipe says green and red peppers though they aren't listed in the instructions. I opted to leave them out. The other thing is that I got nearly 10 meals from this dish, I may have converted measurements incorrectly but wow, lots and lots of food. We really enjoyed our trip to Algeria today. Made for My Food Oddessy.
