OMG.....This is to die for! DH and I almost demolished the whole thing! I made it exactly as called for, but cooked the pepper a tad longer (actually could've cooked a tad longer again 'cuz I don't like the peppers raw tasting. I served it over brown basmati rice (I prefer white, but trying to avoid white anything!) There is so little left that I will have to add something.....a salad maybe...for the second half. Can't wait! Prep time took a while, so it's not a quick meal, but well worth the time it takes.Reply
