What a great taste combination. Do take the time, 40 minutes, to carmelize the onions. I had them on just above low the whole time. The only thing I would change is the amount of olive oil - I would cut that back to 1 1/2 tablespoons. That is just personal taste so I did not sutract a star. My friend said it was just right the way it was. A difinite do again recipe

I liked everything in this and when I saw it I knew I had to make it soon! This is simple to make and it has lots of great taste too. I added in grape tomatoes with great results. This will be enjoyed again!
