    Maura666's Note:

    This recipe originally came from a book that's now lost somewhere... I've made a few adjustments for my personal taste. I don't usually like bell peppers all that much, but love this recipe -- hearty, quite healthy, and works wonderfully all year 'round! Find a local farmers' market for the freshest (and cheapest) bell peppers!
