This recipe was in the Southern Lady magazine Jan/Feb 2006. I used red peppers but you can use either color. I made a few adjustments which I thought made it much easier to prepare. My husband loved it and so did I. Presentation is important, but taste is what matters the most. Try it...you'll like it!!
