I just whipped this up because I had very little in the house and it came out amazing! So there ya go....its a great side dish to whip up with what you most likely already have on hand!!!

This was okay, seemed to be missing something. The pepperoni is a nice touch. I did add some green peppers, and substituted baby carrots instead of the peas. Just needs a little something extra :)
