Very scrumptious. Stayed pretty close to how the recipe was written; except I added 1 clove of fresh minced garlic & a couple slivers of jalapeno. I measure my cheese in ounces (I find it easier than trying to measure out by cups) I started with 1 oz & ended up with 2 oz in my version. Due to the feta, I didn't add any salt. I used 1 1/2 large phyllo sheets per wrap, 2 halfs with butter rolled & last half rolled the opposite direction. We really enjoyed the recipe, this one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
