For the garlic lover. This is great served with a side salad, french bread and for the true garlic lover, a head of baked garlic to spread on the bread. The combination of red and green peppers makes for a nice presentation.

Lovely dish and so quick to make. I didn't have a green pepper so subbed snow peas, but otherwise followed the recipe, using the recommended wine and plenty of fresh thyme from the garden. The gravy is delish. I especially liked the flexibility this recipe offers. It lends itself to having additional or different veggies or even chillies, if that's what your eaters likes. Thanks for posting.
