I knew as soon as I read this recipe that it would be VERY forgiving and I was right!!! I didn't have green peppers or butter so I subbed in diced carrots and olive oil. Delicious! I also threw in some fresh parsley because I had it in the house and wanted to use it up. Thanks for posting, the possibilities are endless, and it makes a great vegan meal if you don't use butter.

A flavorful, high fiber dish. It needs every bit of the 60 minutes baking time.
