This recipe turned out great! I used fresh green beans. The bright green beans with the red bell pepper was very pleasing to the eye. Some may think these vegetables are bland but they were just how I like them. I made them to go with my ham balls and oven roasted sweet potatoes with onion for New Years Day. Scrumptious!
