We make something similar, but we put in Italian sausage (Mild or Spicy, your choice).

I haven't made this yet but it sounds like it would make a great vegetarian sauce for pasta. I am going to try it with eggplant. Since I have never cooked an eggplant, any suggestions as to how to handle it?

Hi fudgecake 5614000 - All of our recipes are user-submitted so unfortunately we don't have an exact time on how long it takes to cook the vegetables. We'd recommend keeping an eye on them and taking them off the stove once the onions are translucent. Hope this helps! -The editors of RecipeLion

This isn't a recipe, it's a list of ingredients. Do you stir the ingredients?? How long does it take "until the onions are translucent"?

add some cubed Monterey Jack cheese and this dish is to die for
