Very easy to prepare, tasty dish. I made it with a green bell pepper since that was all I had on hand and it was delicious. I'm sure it will be even better when I make it with a red pepper next time!

This is easy to make and the bright green and red liven up the table. The vege's were nice and crunchy and the taste was subtle. I used an entire bunch of asparagus and would probably add a bit more seasoning next time. DH and I think that the leftovers will be good right out of the refrigerator tomorrow. Nice dish to go with anything.
