Italian Sauce Wings, with Mushrooms Chickpea's and Peppers

One of my  late dad's favorites, easy and finger licking good!

This is actually a funny story. Dad use to make these all the time, long after his mom passed away. Every time he made them, he would say, the sauce isn't right until your fingers stick to the napkin after eating the wings. He literally would have tiny pieces of napkin stuck to his fingers, that's how he knew the sauce was thick enough and had that texture grandma made.  I will always remember that, so make sure you have thick, stick to your fingers sauce here!

2 bell peppers cut in strips
1 can garbanzo beans
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of cayenne
1 lb mushrooms
1/2 cup burgundy wine
1 clove minced garlic
