    Recipe from Eating Well Magazine, March/April 2009. This is a low calorie option and I love that it's cooked in micro and stovetop. . .no heating up the house with the oven!

      Love colored peppers and this is going into my collection! Really enjoyed -think the vinegar is a key flavor. Made this ahead, nuked them a bit, and had them for lunch. I subbed black eyed peas for the chick peas and fresh tomato (well drained) for the sun dried. Thanks JanuaryBride for another keeper!
