Sorry to give this a low rating, but it wasn't very good. Edible, but very bland. I tried to spice it up a bit by using extra onion and pepper, and s&p, but it didn't improve the flavor. We also found that there wasn't enough sauce in the dish, so we ended up pouring a little extra on top after it was cooked. Overall, this seems like the start of a good recipe, but it needs some work.
