Very simple and tasty. A couple of notes ... I did use fresh thyme vs dried. I think the flavor was much better. Just my personal preference. I also used more garlic, but again, I LOVE garlic. My last note is that I didn't cover my onions, they tend to sweat more whereas uncovered they brown. Fifteen minutes and they were golden brown uncovered. Lots of salt and pepper.
I loved it. The swiss was really nice with it. Served it as a side under some grilled chicken and portabellos.
