    Very good. The feta really makes it "pop" and is a must! Thanks for a new recipe!

    Lovely with the salty flavour of feta. I used baby spinach, white Basmati rice cooked with butter, frozen baby peas, and no dill. We had this with recipe#219312 for a good meal. I would make this again without dill per preference here.

    Good stuff! I left out the peas and feta (since I didn't have any), added chicken and pine nuts and extra lemon. It tastes like the filling of a spinich pie, and is great topped with plain yogurt. It's easy and versatile which is right up my alley!

    I added Kalamata olives and chopped fresh tomatoes and left out the peas in mine, but otherwise made per the directions. The taste was delicious and this is one pilaf I plan to make often, as we really enjoyed it with our baked lamb chops seasoned with greek seasoning. Thanks MsBindy! Ann
