Sauteed Onions and Peppers (Barefoot Contessa) Ina Garten

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Manami

This is wonderful! We used it as a side for steak and for chicken livers, but it can be used for sausages, chicken, pork, pasta and I could go on and on. Be creative and add mushrooms if you like. 11/01/06 update...we made this again and added the mushrooms and it was delicious!(1 lb of button mushrooms but am sure it will work beautifully with any type of mushrooms).

Very nice! I didn't have yellow peppers, and used portobello instead of button mushrooms. Thanks for posting! Made for the Secret Ingredient game.
