    Very easy-to-make light dish for a very busy day. This was so easy to put together and stick in the frig and pop it in the oven at the end of the day. We served it with a tossed salad for a complete light supper. Thanks Evelyn for sharing this simple-to-make dish.

    I give the recipe four stars for ease and general yumminess, but three stars for freezer-friendliness, just because it was a little crispy on the outside and gummy on the inside I guess from thawing so long. (I say this becausze I've made non-frozen stratas and didn't have this probem) I actually expected it to work better since you have to let it sit in the fridge for 12 hours or so anyway. I thawed it in the fridge for a day, then baked covered in the oven for about an hour and 15minutes before uncovering and baking 15 minutes more. Great use of leftovers, but not my first choice for freezing.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
