  • In a large pan or wok, sauté your chopped parsley, dried oregano, chopped garlic, and diced onion with a healthy dose of olive oil. Cook this slowly over medium-low heat, careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Once everything is softened and fragrant, but not brown, add a tablespoon or two of butter and optionally a hot chili pepper. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Julienne your bell peppers and add them to the sauce. Every now and then give them a good stir until they are tender.
