This is a recipe that my late mother in-law used to make. I am putting here for safe keeping as I want to be sure to pass it on to my kids as it is a dish we make often, especially as a side dish on the Holidays. Such a simple dish that really packs a great flavor...

I usually try hard not to change much in a recipe when I first make it, but I did cut back on the amount of butter used here! I used 6 tablespoons of it to carmalize the onions & green pepper, & then just 2 tablespoons to dot the prepared dish before baking! I also used a can of low sodium tomatoes! When all was said & done, though, we have a wonderful tasting vegetarian dish that my son & DIL thoroughly enjoyed! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef event]
