I just looked up this recipe, again, and cannot believe I never wrote a review. This is my staple "go to" dish. Every time I go to a shower, pot luck or family get together, I take this dish. Everyone asks for the recipe, I give it but add that they cannot take it to any family function because it is "my dish." It is so good. I usually add some roasted pine nuts and greek olives.
