      I made a 1 serving batch for an afternoon appetizer. I left out the bell pepper for personal preference. Similar to shrimp scampi, this recipe is low in calories, fast and easy to make, this was a winner. Because of such a small batch, I did have to drizzle in some oil to the pan b/c it dried out of liquid but I did not include that in the rating. It's just for future reference.
