The best thing about this recipe is that you can add as many vegetables as you please! Onions and mushrooms are great options. If you're not in the mood for vegan, add shredded cheese and grate it!

Every once in a while I like taking a break from eating meat, and I prepare a delicious vegetarian meal for my husband and kids. When I told them about a meatless dinner that involved vegetables, the kids weren't that excited about it. I knew that I would prove them wrong, and I did! They loved the combinations of the peppers with basil and garlic. Plus, it is a healthy meal that's super easy to make!
