As you know, I love making recipes that are quick and easy. This recipe is one of those “set it and forget it” type of recipes that I absolutely love. While this one is not in an actual crockpot, once it’s simmering on the stove, the rest is easy! It gives me a chance to get the kids in the bathtub after a busy day of school while I check on dinner every now and then at the same time! The combination of onion, garlic and red bell peppers simmering in the vegetable broth really fills the house with a welcoming smell that makes everyone ask “ooh what’s for dinner?!” Enjoy!
