  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), (2 turns of the pan)

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed away from skin

  • 2 green bell peppers, seeded and sliced lengthwise, 1/2-inch strips

  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced lengthwise, 1/2-inch strips

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, (a couple of handfuls)

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add EVOO, crushed garlic and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté until just tender, 6-7 minutes. Sprinkle in cheese and remove from heat.
