Tonight’s dinner was super fun. We had leftover pizza sauce, roasted peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes from Saturday’s pizza night with Mindy and Joel, so Mat came up with this stir fry while I was at ballet. It was definitely a winner!
It started with garlic and onions:
Then red pepper flakes:
Add roasted and chopped fresh red and yellow peppers:
Add pizza sauce and sun-dried tomatoes…done!
We served it with a salad tossed with a mixture of ranch and Italian:
And had some honeydew on the side:
It was super delicious. I love inventing new recipes! Or when Mat invents recipes. 🙂 And so it’s easier, here’s the complete ingredients and instructions:
