For this recipe I used sweet onions, a 12 oz. jar of roasted peppers in olive oil. Drain and blot peppers with paper towels to remove excess oil prior to chopping. I also added the Romano cheese on top right before baking. No need to add additional salt. Twenty minute prep time included sauteeing of the onions.
