Made this for my family tonight........added garlic, sweet pepper and a red onion (didn't have a spanish onion). Also didn't have parmigio cheese so I used parmesan and topped with chedder. The kids each tried a bite or two and decidec to opt for sandwiches. My husband and I enjoyed the dish. Would make it again with some variations! Thanks for the recipe I will add it to my stash.
