Recipe by Sackville

I enjoyed this comforting dish with a baked chicken breast and a salad but it would also be good with some nice bread.

Friedel, this is such a beautiful dish when made with red bell pepper! It is so pretty that it could easily be used to brighten up a holiday dinner table! We enjoyed this very much tonight, as I usually simply steam our broccoli. What a delightful change of pace! I used regular bread crumbs to mix with the cheese for the topping. Thank you so much, Friedel for posting this wonderful recipe!
