MY REVIEW

Not a keeper. Tasted like spaghetti with meat sauce on a bun, so the feta did very little to the overall taste.

This was great. It was a bit too much tomato sauce. I added more garlic and pepper. Very tasty. Very easy!

I used ground lamb instead, greek oregano and grilled pita. Great recipe !

MY REVIEW

Pretty good. I used a pre-made (homemade) pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and oregano, which made it even simpler, if that were possible. The feta is a nice touch.

So deliciously simple. I also added about a tablespoon of Worcester sauce. This will definitely be making it back to my dinner table.
