      Delish! Made some shrimp sautéed in garlic and olive oil and served over top. Doubled the feta as well. Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe!

      Discovered this same recipe in a cookbook several years ago and I've been making to rave reviews ever since. We recently moved and I can't find the cookbook (it's my favorite) so I'm grateful to "sydsmama" for posting it here. I've always made it exactly per the instructions (no substitutions) and it tastes delicious every single time. Occasionally, I may sneak some extra feta into it b/c we love feta but it's just perfect "as is". It usually disappears in less than a day or two in our household so I often have to make double and triple the recipe to keep an ample supply on hand - it's THAT good!

      This made the perfect lunch and couldn't have been easier. I used a garlic and herb-flavored feta. Will definitely make again!
