This is a delicious and nutritious recipe seasoned with a dash of balsamic vinegar, salt and freshly ground black pepper. This dish maybe more of a side than a main but is quite filling nonetheless.
The balsamic vinegar adds a touch of sweetness to the overall savory peppers and keeps the flavors light.
