I played around with this one, which was originally from Pillsbury. My family likes it, and so do I.

This was a very tasty, one pot meal that was perfect for a weeknight dinner. The combination of ingredients worked well together and everyone enjoyed it. Very colorful too, from all the bell peppers.
