I got this from Nava Atlas' Vegetarian Kitchen web site. I only changed from crumbling the feta onto the stew after serving to putting the crumbled feta directly into the stew after cooking.

I was searching for a recipe like this to incorporate all the bounty from my garden. I used Italian flat beans and skipped the feta to make it a more Italian dish. The nice thing with this recipe is that it is flexible. Really delicious just slightly warm.
