Another delicious cooking Light recipe. I have tweaked the ingredients just a little to suit my tastes. The original receipe calls for a cup of dried currants, but I prefer it without.

This had a decent flavor - the carmelized onions give it just a hint of sweetness - but was not terrible impressive for the amount of effort (and dirty dishes) involved. We topped this with fresh ground pepper, yet it still seemed to be missing something - just not sure what. It's a good starting point for future experimenting.
