    Delicious recipe. I had to use a yellow pepper. Great substitution. This is an easy snack or side dish.

    This worked much much better than I was expecting! So simple, but the different ingredients worked really well together and it was a delicious and satisfying meal. When I grated the feta cheese, I thought that it was going to be far too much, but I was wrong, the quantities stipulated were correct. It would be nice with salad, but today was cold, so we used steamed baby sweet corn and broccoli to go with. Thanks for a great recipe.
