My kids eat this pretty well, and I had a friend over for dinner who just loved it! It's definitely a favorite meal for when I have company!

The time is a rough estimate, I am a slow cook in a nearly microscopic kitchen with limited resources, so everything takes me longer. ;)

Add the remaining 2 T olive oil to the skillet (after cleaning it) and cook the chopped red pepper and garlic for about 2-3 minutes. Stir in 1 tbsp of flour and stir constantly for one minute.
