The cream gives this dish a really rich boost.

This recipe is full of different flavors that go perfectly together. I used red bell peppers, 1 medium onion, didn't measure ;) I used a package of 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms that I sliced and added at the same time of the bell peppers and onions. This is comfort food to me which was perfect for a rainy Sunday. Thanks Gailanng :) Made for the Australian Recipe swap for May 2011
