Place the semolina, water, chopped onion, pepper, herbs, salt, and half the butter in a small saucepan, and simmer for twenty minutes, stirring frequently. Then stand the saucepan on one side for a few minutes to cool slightly. Beat the eggs, add them to the mixture, stir well together, and pour into a baking dish or tin which has been greased with the remainder of the butter. Bake half to three-quarters of an hour.
May be eaten hot or cold, or is very nice cut into small pieces and fried in butter.
