    We had this for Christmas and it was delicious! I felt three onions would have been too much, I only used two and it was still mostly onion. I love roasted red onion, but, per my tastes, I felt maybe 1 1/2 red onions would have made a better ratio. Either way, it was amazing!! - 12/26/10

    Pretty good way to do green beans. We were getting behind, so I steamed the green beans for 3 minutes in the microwave, then sauteed them in the sauce for another minute and it was really good. - 11/27/09

    Really tasty! I didn't need 14 servings, so I cut the recipe down significantly, and it turned out delicious. My kids loved it, and they're not big onion fans! - 4/30/10

    Glad you could make this work. I used this originally for Thanksgiving. We only have 14 when the extended family get together.
