I love taking advantage of a bargain & using left overs, broccoli was on sale, I had mini sweet peppers left over, so decided to create something to combine them all together.

This is what I came up with and it was ahh so good.

The blending of the veggies and unique flavor combination from the garlic, onion powder, lemon pepper, & italian seasoning made this a very tasty & colorful side dish item for the dinner table.

It was the first thing that I ate all of before tasting the other food items, even the Prime Rib.

I shared 2 plates with my neighbor & her husband.
