      This recipe is simple and yummy! I didn't cut the pita bread in half, I just kept it whole. I only had 1 onion, so I cooked that up and it was plenty for 3 pitas. I didn't use as much goat cheese as recommended to save calories and saturated fat, but it still turned out great. I didn't have tarragon, so I left that out. I didn't have fresh parsley, so I sprinkled on lots of dried and it was perfect. I don't have a BBQ (live upstairs in an apartment with no balcony), so I used our oven broiler and it was PERFECT. Thanks for sharing, I'll be making this again and again and again :)

      This is very good. I didn't cut the pita bread. I did half the recipe with 1 large red onion and I used the same amount of oil. Thanks Shelby Jo :) Made for PRMR tag game

      I cut the recipe back for one, and I think I didn't cut back the amount of tarragon enough (probably because I love tarragon)! My first bite was questionable, but after that, I couldn't quit eating it. I loved it. Easy recipe to cut back for one. Thanks for posting!
