I remember my mom making this years ago (when she was on WW). She also made this with chicken. Both are delicious. Thank you for posting!!
This dish is delicious , easy and very pretty. I used a red onion , a green pepper and a red pepper. It was very tasty and I will be making it for my family. Paired it up with Trader Joes Vegetable fried rice which is super easy and only 180 per cup. Both my husband and my son had seconds. Thanks for posting this keeper recipe! : )
Wowza! This was yummmmmmmy!!! Will be making again and next time will follow 2 other suggestions to add red bell pepper (as I was making it I thought darn this would look even prettier with red in it) and crushed red pepper (I too thought it was yummy as written, but would also be tasty with a hint of spice). I might make slightly more sauce next time too so I could have plenty to top it off with. Thanks for this recipe! Its a definite new regular! Oh by the way my 3 year old daughter also loved it and asked for seconds - BONUS!!!
