Heat balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan until boil, then reduce heat to simmer until it becomes syrupy, about 6 minutes.
Meanwhile in a medium nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add the sage leaves, lemon strips, and red pepper flakes, stirring frequently, and cook for about 2 minutes.
Stir in the baby bell peppers, cook for another 3 to 5 minutes until softened. Add the slightly flattened garlic, and cook for another 5 minutes or until the garlic and peppers start to become brown and smells very fragrant. Stir in the olives, and cook through about 2 minutes.
Place onto a serving platter, drizzle the balsamic glaze over the mixture and serve with crusty bread.
