Not a ton of ingredients, and not too many steps at all. I will make this quite a bit in the future.

I've never had this in restaurant's since I eat mostly at home, but it's a great dish to take for a gathering. I'm not much for sugar in my veggies so I'd have to see if decreasing that would still make it taste great.
