Pita Stuffed Souvlaki

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PaulaG

If you are like me, sometimes there is to much of a good thing and that leaves leftovers. I made CountryLady's Greek Souvlaki and there was about 6 ounces left. What to with it? Stuffed Pita's of course. This is an quick fix for leftover Souvlaki. Of course you will also need leftover tzatziki! For a quick weeknight meal for two, serve with a large Greek salad.

I didn't have leftovers, so I cooked up some souvlaki and had this as "dinner for one" .
didn't have pita, but I did have wraps. Wonderful, easy and healthy meal!
made for Aussie swap, august 2010
