      Yummy! I used a green bell pepper (had on hand) and 2bleu's 2 Minute 2 Easy Pizza Sauce for the sauce which already had most of the spices from this recipe in it, so it made it super simple to put together. The wine adds an elegant touch to this recipe and the cheeses are a wonderful addition. I forgot to add eggs, but it still held together nicely. Next time, I will use an assortment of colored bell peppers for even more color. Thanks for sharing your recipe. :)
