My dad made this as long as I can remember. It is a delicious, quick and inexpensive meal. The more peppers and onions the better.

I halved the recipe and since I don't care for red bell peppers, I substituted with a yellow bell pepper. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder.

Good vegetarian spaghetti sauce - I halved the recipe for the three of us subbing 1 orange bell pepper in place of the 1 green bell pepper. I usually omit salt in recipes, but felt that it was needed here. I used plain tomato sauce as stated; I would add Italian seasonings next time around. Mine didn't look anything like Sharon123's photo... Made for PAC Spring 2008!

Delicious! I made some minow adjustments, used canned spaghetti sauce which I added a touch of sugar and a touch of wine to. My DH and I loved it. Thank you! Made for Pick a Chef!
