Enjoyed this as a side dish with fish this evening. Beautiful colours, crisp-tender veggies and great flavour. I had to use dried basil and left out the red pepper flakes too - we are wimpy. Thx so much, will make again.

Fantastic!! I used red,yellow and orange baby peppers. The only thing that I changed was I skipped out on the red pepper flakes. I served this as a side dish to turkey breast and sweet potato casserole. It really complimented the meal. Thanks for posting! :)

I rarely make a dish without modifications and this one suited my taste perfectly... well nearly. I only added salt to taste. It is excellent served warm on top of your favorite sandwich. Thanks for posting.
