4 egg whites
teaspoon of dried basil
2 teaspoons of grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
One sweet red pepper (thinly sliced)
One yellow pepper (thinly sliced)

1) In a large non-stick frying pan, warm the oil over medium heat.

4) Coat a small non-stick frying pan with non-stick spray.

5) Warm the ingredients over medium-high heat for one minute.
