A wonderful way to get beta carotene and not be stuck in the super sweet mode with sweet potatoes.

I found this to be a very good take off on sweet potatos. The use of olive oil was a good addition to this recipe that really made the difference. The sweet peppers were also a plus. For something different. Go this one!!!
