Wow! I was so impressed with how easy and how supercalifragilisticexpiali-delicious this recipe was! I halved the recipe, using 1 each yellow and orange bell peppers (smallish ones). I used heirloom cherry tomatoes instead of large tomatoes, halving or quartering them into small bite-size pieces. I used chevre. DH also loved this recipe, and even DS liked the bite I gave him. The only (really minor) changes I can think I might like to try would be to increase the anchovies (we love them so) and possibly decrease the chevre to maybe 1/2 the amount called for. However, I was very impressed with these and can't wait to make them again. They were just perfect with grilled steaks! Thank you so much for posting, bluemoon! Made for Newest Zaar Tag game.
