This is good & it makes a lot!

I followed the recipe (except that I added 2 cloves of garlic) & I will say that I spent a lot of time preparing vegetables....not that I mind, I am happy in the kitchen :) Dicing instead of julienne would also be visually appealing too....& a lot quicker. It is a very colourful dish.

I'm keeping this recipe
