A go-to in my home. Lots of sauce, but I too add an addition potato and it is perfect!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 20, 2014 Edited Apr. 24, 2014

Very good flavor but a bit heavy on the onion. In following the recipe exactly, I felt there was too much sauce, which can easily be remedied by adding another potato or two to soak up more of the sauce. Next time I may add a minced clove of garlic as someone else suggested to see how that tastes as well as cut back a bit on the onion. Otherwise a very good side dish that was fairly easy to make.
