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.

How to Make Broccoli Rainbow Mini Swt Peppers, Tom & Onions

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a large pot or skillet with water till boiling. Then add broccoli & stir till it becomes a bright green about 3 minutes or so. Strain into a colonder. Then place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain when needed to add to skillet.
  2. Add olive oil & butter in same skillet, & heat till butter melts.
  3. Add the pepper rings, tomatoes, minced garlic onion & spices, cook just till tender.
  4. Add the broccoli & stir to combine. Spray a 3-4 quart casserole dish with cooking spray, add the sauteed veggies.
  5. Top with shredded parmesan cheese. Garnish with french fried onion rings, & mini sweet pepper halves. Serve immediately while still hot. Or you can prepare ahead and pre heat when ready to serve.
  6. I forgot to mention that the tomatoes I added to this dish was left over from the cored tomatoes in my STUFFED TOMATO CUPS, I will be posting the recipe for it real soon. I hate wasting food, so it really came in handy for this broccoli dish.
