    PaulaG's Note:

    This makes a beautiful side dish to serve with pork or chicken. I use a combination of yellow and red bell peppers for a wonderful color combination. The recipe is from The Diabetic Cookbook with some minor changes.

      Omg this was wonderful! I use red, orange and yellow baby peppers. I didn't cook the peppers as long as the broccoli because I didn't want them to be too soft but otherwise made this delicious dish as directed. Made for ZWT9 Soup A Stars

      This was a great dish, PaulaG. The sauce was a little overpowering for my family, but it was a great side dish for our beef dinner. Made for ZWT #9 SE Asia.

      We're always looking for ways to enjoy broccoli and peppers, and this was one of the better recipes my family has had. The sauce is what stood out, but we felt there wasn't enough of it.
