Very good and easy to make. This would be even better using a Vidalia, so I can't wait to make this again this spring and summer. It was a lot of olive oil for something you are going to drain anyways. I used just 1 cup and it worked out fine. Made and Reviewed for Every Day Holiday tag - Thanks! :)

Kate another winner for us! This smells wonderful and tastes even better. Do use red peppers and not substitute green. I used 2 large onions and had a bit of trouble slicing the garlic thin so used 5 tablespoons of minced from a jar. Thank you for posting hon and have a very Happy New Year!
