    I too would add some feta cheese. Because I’m always looking to make a recipe healthier, I’d use reduced-fat or fat-free feta. Both cheeses are delicious..

    Ok, so I’m reading the recipe and thinking to myself that this would be perfection if it had a nice cube of briny feta cheese. And then I read the footnote : )

      Wendi – we will let you in on a little secret – the plan was to add feta .. but, I forgot it at the store! I even had a list, but as usual came out with practically nothing on my list and 4 bags of groceries .. how does that happen?
