This has really nice flavors, and is such an unusual dish - and it's quite easy. I followed exactly, except I skipped the green peppers (personal preference) and I did add about 4 oz of tomato sauce with 4 oz of water to have a little sauce to simmer in. I went in a different direction and served this over spaghetti squash. Really good. Thanks for posting.
