  1. Souper easy to make. I did add a little kosher salt when I plated my serving. Thanks for posting. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013
  2. Made this whole recipe & shared it with a couple of housebound neighbors who absolutely love mac & cheese ~ They really enjoyed this version, too, as did the 2 of us! Now that I have a supply of some 5 different Greek cheeses, I'll be going nuts with them, even after the tour is concluded! Thanks for a wonderful keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed while in Greece with ZWT6]
  3. Excellent! It's like a Greek mac & cheese. Loved the creamy texture and the flavor of the feta cheese. I used half regular feta and half goat's milk feta. Oh, yummy! Thanx for posting; I'll be making this again!
  4. I scaled this down for one and enjoyed it very much! Made for ZWT#9 2013 by one of the Hot Stuff!
  5. I really like the combination of the feta and pasta. I halved the recipe and used parmesan on top. I think I might try feta with basil and sundried tomatoes next.


I live near Seattle, WA with my husband of 11 years and our pet ferrets. We're lucky enough to own a home with a big, south facing yard which is great for entertaining. It also allows me to have a big vegetable garden where I grow most of my own herbs and a lot of the vegetables we eat in the summer, as well as a bunch to share with family and friends. In my professional life, I'm an accountant- but what I really love to do is cook and eat! Most of my ability is self-taught. I love to experiment with new recipes and techniques, most of which I get from watching way too much food tv and reading foodie magazines. Recently I decided to start a personal chef business and have cooked for a few clients. I love the challenge of designing a menu to fit a family's specific tastes and needs, and then cooking it for them to enjoy. For me, cooking is an expression of love. Everyone needs to eat, but food is more than just fuel for the body, it can nurture and comfort ~ give us a memory from childhood, or a retreat when we feel ill. I always think of the people who I'm cooking for when I make a dish, and there is no better compliment than when someone enjoys the food I've made especially for them. I also like to do OAMC- style cooking, but instead of using it mainly to get dinner on the table, I focus on getting lunch in the bag! Eating out is far too expensive in both dollars and nutrition to make a habit of, yet I want a hot, satisfying meal to enjoy in the middle of the day. Cookin ahead allows me to have great food, without sacrificing either my dollars or my waistline. <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src="">[IMG][/IMG]
