  1. Just tried this recipe with some adjustments though. I added green and red pepper and had to use regular tomatoes. Doesn’t look like yours but its passable!

    • I’m sure it’s delicious, Sana! So glad you tried it out–peppers would be a tasty addition to this recipe. Hope you enjoyed your meal! =)

      • Tasted it and its pretty good but its not for me 😦 Thanks for the recipe! You have me all motivated to do a food blog but I think for now I’ll just stick to posting pics on Facebook.
