I got this from a Prevention cooking book. My mother is on a crazy diet and she loves it because it has a lot of flavor and is very low in carbs.

This was incredible!! Very, very good! I doubled the bell pepper and used one yellow and one green and used 1 cup of broth. I also added whole garlic cloves to the peppers and my goodness!! Thanks so much for this recipe, it's a keeper!
