I wanted to like this because it is quick and easy but I found it a bit uninspiring and a little bland. I think it could be kicked up a notch by adding some sausage for some zing or something of that nature but as the recipe is now, it is just okay

This is another one of my PAC Spring 07 recipes. I was really surprised how easy this was to put together. Lovely! FDH wasn't that crazy about them. (surprise to me) I froze the unbaked leftovers for later.

This recipe is easy and 5 stars. I made this for ZWT II for a Greek recipe, and I thought it was really good. The cheese is a huge taste, but that's what it's supposed to be. We really like these, AND they looked beautiful!
