We try to do vegetarian meals once a week, some weeks we’re pretty good, some weeks we are not – at all 🙂
I was a bit apprehensive about this one – the flavors from the feta are pretty strong but Hubby really liked it, so that’s a win in my book. The picky boy is at boyscouts, so I’m going to go out on a limb and think he’s not going to be keen on it, but he’s a big boy and will get over it.
This was a really quick meal to put together and I added some toasted Naan from the freezer – which is always tasty.
