I made this last night for dinner and served it with a salad. I did add sliced mushrooms, chopped red pepper and some minced garlic to the onions as they sauteed. I then added some ham because my husband wanted some "meat". As you said it is easy and delicious! Thank you for posting this recipe. Made for Spring Pac 09.
