"This is from The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas. I haven't made this one, but it sounds yummy and beautiful! I decreased the oil and gave the option to increase the herbs. A quote: This not only looks like Christmas but it tastes like Christmas! Do not overcook the peppers. Posted for the You Want What?! recipe tag game."

I made this with red and yellow peppers and used white wine instead of red. This was delicious, a great side to any main meat course.
