    English_Rose's Note:

    The sauce can be prepared and kept bottled in fridge (or frozen) and can be used in lots of other ways. Chopped up feta cheese could also be added. Serve sprinkled with lots of fresh chopped parsley, with fresh bread or pita.

      Thanks for the recipe idea. I'm not giving a rating because I did make some changes to the recipe. I used 1 red pepper and 1 anaheim chile. I did not have parsley and I served it with homemade wheat bread and fried turnips. This recipe is quite a bit different than shakshouka I've had in the past -- this is more of a pepper sauce and less of a tomato sauce. Still it was very tasty and I'll use more pepper than usual in the future.
