This was sooo good. My husband and I made it last night and were blown away by the combination of tastes. Disclosure: we did leave out the pearl onions (served 'em on the side!) and eased up just a touch on the olive oil, but otherwise we hewed strictly to the recipe and loved it. Thank you for a really great dish that appeals to both vegetarians (moi) and flexitarians!
