I just can’t seem to help but to fall for most anything Mediterranean and this dish is certainly no exception. Bold flavor and a beautifully orchestrated combination of textures makes this one of those recipes your family is sure to love and you’re sure to enjoy making time and time again.


3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Onion, diced

2 Garlic Cloves, chopped

1 Red Bell Pepper, diced

2 cups Baby Bella Mushrooms, quartered

⅓ cup packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped
