This was such a pleasant surprise! I am not a pepper fan, so I replaced them with cauliflower, added a little extra garlic and sprinkled some of my home made flavored olive oil before roasting. Oh, this is heavenly! I used it with celery stick (pita is not friendly to me, but I made them for the family) NO leftovers tonight!
