      This was pretty good. I accidentally bought fat free feta, so blah on that. But it was the first time I have ever made a pilaf, which was exciting. :) I'm not usually a fan of thyme but it worked really well in this dish.

      I made this for a big family gathering and everyone loved it, a really good and easy recipe. I have given several people a copy, and we are all fans. Thanks!

      I hate to only give a recipe 3 stars. Especially one of Kittencal's; but, truthfully I wouldn't make this dish again. It just didn't suit our tastebuds. My 8 & 6 year old ate it (w/ threat of no dessert if they didn't). My husband and I ate it. We didn't hate it; but, we just didn't love it. Sorry!!
