MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2015

"I made this because I happened to have the ingredients and it seemed simple. This was very easy and quick but it was also excellent. I added a dash of hot pepper sauce and a tsp of brown sugar."

"This was a great weeknight meal, which only took about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. The feta cheese is what makes this for me - otherwise I tend to agree that it tastes like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll add some garlic and maybe some souvlaki seasoning to amp up the Greek flavor. Still a great base recipe to keep as is or make it your own!"

"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!"
