I tweaked this delicious recipe quite a lot, although I think what I did was in the spirit of the recipe! I used 1 garlic clove and 1 small onion, minced and sauteed before adding the peppers. I used 3 smallish green peppers and 2 roasted red peppers. My mushrooms were large Portobellos - next time I think I will cut them in half before slicing crosswise. Had no tarragon, and used anise seeds, which I found as a possible substitute - you could also try with dill or fennel seeds. To my own plate I added a few red pepper flakes for a little heat. We loved it with our chicken schnitzel and basmati rice.
