I steamed the Broccoli
I steamed the Broccoli, and I sauteed the garlic and red peppers together, but kept them seperate. My son hates red bell peppers. Adding the garlic/pepper mix seperaely made for really yummy broccoli that my hubby and i enjoyed!
I omitted the bell pepper and added one quater cup Balsamic Vinegar and 2 or 3 Tbsp Lite Brown Sugar, stirring until glazed.... Yummy!!!!!
