This was great!! I just loved the colors all mixed together. I added just a splash of lemon juice at the end for a little bite. Thanks!

The green & the red are just made for each other :) Great blend of flavours and very easy to make. I cooked my broccoli in the microwave while cooking the peppers in a pan. Thanks for posting this 'keeper' :)

This was a excellent recipe! It went very well with the Grilled Halibut recipe I made today. Very tasty and easy to make too. Thanks for sharing Carla!
