2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil

Thank you, I am thinking next time I make it about using an orange bell pepper instead of the yellow for even more color. :)

This looks so good! Would be nice for a potluck, in place of the 5 bean salad my mom used to make!
My daughter has been using fresh corn cut off the cob for her Mexican Lasagna (we're gluten free, so that's an easy 'nacho' style option)
