Nice way to do mac & cheese...though I did find it drier than normal mac & cheese. The croûtons on the bottom get lost in all the juice as do the ones on top. If I make this again, I will use all the croûtons on the very top (after I've poured the liquid mixture in and put the feta on top) to keep them crispy. Made for ZWT4. (-:

Wnderful texture and very mild flavor. I made this as written, but used pre-made herb croutons. I wouldn't say this was bland, but I did sprinkle a little garlic powder on my serving and that made it just right for me. Thanx for a great Greek-style mac & cheese-type recipe. I'll make this again.
