  • Made my own version of this last night. Always in a time crunch, I used frozen peppers & onions (I microwaved them before adding b/c I don't like them very crunchy). I wish I'd had mushrooms, it would have made it awesome. May add black olives next tim. Whole family loved it! Will make again! - 6/17/10
