I blanched the broccoli in the AM, got the pepperes all sliced etc and then just before dinner it too k me 4 minutes to finish this delicious dish. I can't believe that it can taster this good and be so low in calories. It's a keeper, thanks again Dorothy

This was great! I loved the way the broccoli kept a bit of crunch and stayed so green - a nice contrast against the peppers. Thanks for posting it.

Loved the flavour and the colour combination of this dish. Had it with a jacket baked potato with lite sour cream on top and my baked lemon chicken breasts. The flavours blended beautifully. Thanks for posting Cheers :)
