To make this dish Paleo or Primal compliant, simply replace bottled dressing with your own homemade version.

If yellow and red bell peppers are too expensive, you may use all green bell peppers, but if you do this, then substitute yellow crookneck squash for the zucchini squash to add more color to the finished dish.

Leftovers reheat well in either the oven or the microwave.
