This is a quick, easy and delicious dish! I did make a couple of slight changes: I don't care for onions so left them out, I used a regular red pepper instead of a roasted one, and I sauted the peppers with the garlic. This is really yummy and truly a one-pan dish - great for a quick weeknight meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!
