"This was delicious and very easy. I served it over grilled Italian Sausages and my family loved it. The only thing I did different was that I added one green pepper and I used a yellow onion. It took 20-30 minutes for the peppers and onions to carmelize. This worked perfect for the grilling time of the sausages!"
