Another family favorite, delicious and colorful. We prefer the tomatoes a bit cooked, though, so I add them with the cream and the ham.

This turned out to be very good and lends itself quite well to various modifications. For example, I used pre-cooked chicken I had from a previous meal, adding it after cooking the pepper and onion first. It's also very good with a little "heat" or some fresh herbs. I used some chopped fresh rosemary. Next time, I'm going to add some fresh mushrooms.
