  • I cooked this last night and it was brilliant. I substituted the sweet red wine for rose wine, as I had no red, and added asparagus and broccoli instead of the peppers :0)

    All in all, this was a great success and I have enough for the rest of the week as well freezing some of it! - 8/25/09
