I am posting this recipe today, it is simple, quick, easy and light. You could add more to it to make it a more substantial meal, but my hubby was going away on business and prefers a light meal before he goes away

this was delicious, quick and easy to put together for a week night dinner. i served this over rice and with portuguese rolls to get all the sauce. i followed the recipe and added the last of my green peppers from my garden.
