We has this for dinner tonight and WOW was it ever amazing! DELICIOUS! I added a minced clove of garlic with the onions and used 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes in place of the pepper to give it a little zing for my hubby. He couldn't stop raving about it!

As I was a rookie cook at the time, I will fix a little mistake in that variation -- red pepper flakes was actually chili pepper flakes. Sorry.
