• Use any frozen vegetables you like. But since pepper strips are classic, don’t ditch them entirely, even if you want to add other frozen vegetables.
Consider 8 ounces frozen bell pepper strips plus 8 ounces of another vegetable, even frozen chopped onion.
• Skip the purchased Italian seasoning and make your own blend: Combine 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds.
• Garnish the servings with stemmed and minced fresh herbs, particularly parsley and oregano.
• And/or drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over each serving.
