This is one of the side dishes I made for my husband on Valentine's Day. A combination of fresh veggies mixed with sweet peppers onions & garlic, seasoned with steak seasoning & topped with a few slices of Fresh Mozzarella cheese & a Red Sweet Bell Pepper Heart. I cooked a large skillet & then made individual servings for the two of us. This vegetable dish was so good & cheesy, we both enjoyed it. I also made an Orzo Pilaf with Gorgonzola cheese which we especially loved as well. I will post the recipe real soon. This is a nice healthy & attractive way to eat your vegetables.
