" This is a wonderfully simple dish that I have modified a bit to suit my family's tastes, and I think it's fantastic! Make sure you have a loaf of fresh bread with this to soak up the sauce! Serve over brown rice or noodles. "

  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 2   bay leaves
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
