Posted for ZWT, looks delicious but I haven't tried it yet. I guessed as to the servings and time.

My boys love the flavor but are convinced they don't like onion and tomato. I finely chop the tomatoes and use onion powder with great success while "on vacation." The boys pick a "vacation" spot, and we study the place, its people, traditions, art, food, economy, etc. This was an easy-to-prepare and authentic part of our "trip."
